Bounty for many to enjoy
Judy’s Pantry, operating out of our church’s Fellowship Hall, held its annual Thanksgiving offerings on Nov. 20 for all individuals and families on rely on the Pantry for healthy eating.
A total of 49 sets of bags with fresh produce and large bins filled with Thanksgiving fixings were spread out across the hall.
The bags, made up by Pantry volunteers, included potatoes, onions, squash, apples and carrots. The produce was made available to the Pantry at a discounted rate by Jordan’s Farm in Cape Elizabeth.
The bins included containers of stuffing, pancake/waffle mix, cranberry sauce, gravy, soups, sparkling cider, canned vegetables, Jello, salad dressings and much more. Each bin also included a gift certificate for the purchase of a turkey or anything else the family would like.
There also was a table filled with 94 mini loaves of sweet and savory breads to which members of our church contributed more than 75 loaves.
The bins were filled by families throughout Cape Elizabeth as part of a Food Drive put on by Amy Lombardo and Jen Tinsman. Cape resident Lisa Stevens and her daughter Rosie decorated the produce bags.
Happy Thanksgiving to the Pantry volunteers and all the Cape families who made this possible!
