I recently met with Dorothy, the new director of the Zion Food Pantry in Norwood, and with Jackie Grant, whom many of you may know from our Sunday morning gatherings, to discuss how Vineyard Central can partner with Norwood’s Zion United Church of Christ to support their monthly food pantry!
The food pantry is open three days each month from 10am to noon, the next one available for VC participation being April 25-26.
There are three practical ways to be involved:
1) donate diapers to a designated drop-off point at VC
2) on one or more of the three pantry days (10am to noon) – help pantry clients choose from the food pantry stock (a social option)
3) on one or more of the three pantry days (10am to noon) – help pantry staff fill out day-of client paper-work (a behind the scenes option)
Please contact Mandy McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating. We’ll plan a time to meet before the April food pantry and then do hands-on training Friday, April 26 and/or Saturday, April 27.
