Our Wednesday Food Pantry is a success. Each week we see some of the regulars along with new patrons.
Did you know all the work involved to make this happen?
-Early in the week, food is picked up at Feeding America by a member of Brookfield Congregational, St. Paul’s or Calvary UCC.
-On Tuesdays, donations are picked up at Starbucks by Bonnie, a member of Calvary Memorial UCC.
-A client of our own food pantry has begun to bring in weekly donations from Brownberry Ovens.
-Sharon & Arlene get all of these donations ready to go on Tuesday afternoon.
-Each Wednesday, Sandy makes sure the day runs smoothly. She works the pantry and orders the food for the next week. Clients are arriving earlier & earlier each week, so she makes sure the coffee is hot & ready.
-Volunteers from both Brookfield Congregational and Calvary work together on Wednesday afternoons to socialize and distribute food to those in need.
This is truly a community effort. Brookfield Congregational UCC has been sponsoring a monthly food drive which provides so much for this pantry. Our pantry couldn’t survive without their many consistent volunteers.
We are always looking for more donations. Please feel free to come by any Wednesday between 1:00 and 3:00 and see for yourself!
