To the Editor:

The Community Lunch Program for Kids, an extension of the Norfolk Raymondville Food Pantry, would like to express our sincere appreciation to Karen Bage, the community coordinator of Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Health Initiative for all her assistance and efforts in helping us secure a grant which allowed the CLPFK to obtain a deep chest freezer, two utility carts, and two hand trucks.

These items were received from the Health Initiative's Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Project, which is funded by New York State Department of Health.

The freezer will allow us to purchase food from the Food Bank of Central New York at greatly reduced prices. The hand trucks will be invaluable when we unload trucks that deliver food for our program. And the utility carts will make it easier for our families who come to our food distributions.

As one can easily see, these additions will assist not only our volunteers, but also the families who receive assistance from our program.
