Pantry Thanksgiving 2017

IMG_3067

Overwhelming generosity

Judy’s Pantry, operating out of our church, once again provided Cape Elizabeth families who have limited resources and struggle to put healthy food on their dinner tables a better way to celebrate Thanksgiving.

On Nov. 15, the Pantry provided 45 large plastic bins and festively decorated paper bags to 45 families. The bags were filled with potatoes, carrots, onions, squash and apples and the bins contained boxes of stuffing gravy, pies, cranberry sauce, fruits and nuts, canned corn, dinner rolls, chicken stock, sparkling cider, gift certificates for turkeys and much more.

Each family also was offered a selection of freshly baked holiday breads prepared by members of our congregation. There were a total of 81 mini loaves. Thank you to Lili Acheson for organizing the bread orders

IMG_3044The bags of produce were prepared by Pantry Coordinator Nancy Miles and her many volunteers. The produce all came from Jordan Farms, which provided the Pantry with the fresh fruits and vegetables at a considerable discount.

The bins of all the Thanksgiving fixings were from Cape families as part of a giving program organized by Amy Lombardo and Jen Tinsman. While 45 of the bins were delivered to our church for the Pantry, another 95 bins of donated foods were taken to Portland for distribution by Opportunity Alliance.
