Northern New York Community Foundation gives to Norfolk-Raymondville Food Pantry
Monday, August 7, 2017 - 7:08 am

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter to express our deep, heartfelt appreciation for the most recent donation we have received from the Northern New York Community Foundation to the Norfolk-Raymondville Food Pantry.

Using this funding we are able to purchase a ton of food from the Food Bank of CNY, to supplement the food supply at the food pantry.

This funding allows us to purchase meats, fruits and vegetables, cereals, peanut butter and jelly, pasta, and other food items, that are that are always desperately needed to supplement the food provided to our clients.

The Norfolk-Raymondville Food Pantry is a five- day pantry, which provides 15 meals per family member on each distribution day; the third Saturday of each month. Even though we are a small food pantry, we may distribute up to 2,500 meals per month.

We would not be able to provide this necessary service without donations from such wonderful organizations as the Northern New York Community Foundation.

On behalf of the Norfolk – Raymondville Food Pantry, our wonderful volunteers, and our many clients of all ages, we would like to express our sincerest appreciation for this very generous donation.

Wendy Chambers

Coordinator, Norfolk-Raymondville Food Pantry
