Food Pantry Adds Holiday Service

Food Pantry Adds Holiday Service

This holiday season will mark the 4th year that the Food Pantry will take advantage of the NYS Food bank’s offer to provide small chickens and bags ofproduce for our distribution.

As in years past, the size of our order will be determined by our financial resources and storage (freezer/cooler) capacity. The chickens will be offered to the 10 registered families with the largest number of children, and the 20 large produce bags will be opened and distributed among all who come the last two weeks of the month.

New this year is Loop’s participation in the Kiwanis Thanksgiving Dinner Program.  As a result of our visit to the Kiwanis’ local chapter meeting (when Daryl Staneck and Al Sieg spoke about hunger in Rochester and the difference our food ministries are making), we have been invited to benefit from their their effort and bounty. Between mid-October and early November, Food Pantry clients were invited to sign up for a hot, prepared Thanksgiving meal for all in their households.

A Kiwanis representative will call each registrant to confirm interest and address later in the month, and then personally deliver the family meal on Thanksgiving day!  God bless the Kiwanis for their generosity of time, treasure, and talent in caring for our community in this way!
