The Food Bank initially served students, seniors, and previous clients from the food pantry. Recently, it has expanded to provide help for any members of the community.
Fire Chief David Grunes estimates that since their March 20 opening, the food bank has seen an increase of roughly 15%, and he hopes to continue this increase in service.
Support a Family’s Food for a Week
While the Food Bank is currently not accepting food donations, financial donations are welcome.
Chief Grunes, who is assisting in running the temporary food bank, estimated that a donation of roughly $30 would cover a bag of food provided to a family.
The bags contain proteins, vegetables, and starches, as well as other miscellaneous groceries, which would supplement the food for the week. Chief Grunes also noted that this cost may change due to further complications caused by the Covid-19 crisis.
