Northborough Food Pantry thanks community

Dear Editor,

The Northborough Food Pantry would like to thank all those who helped make the Feinstein Challenge a success this year.  For the past 14 years, Alan Feinstein has divided $1 million dollars among hunger fighting agencies nationwide by sponsoring a food drive through the months of March and April. All food and cash donated is tallied and funds are distributed based on the percentage of food collected.

The Northborough schools all hosted food drives, donating more than 6647items (total number of food and dollars). These donations, along with the percentage check we will receive from the Feinstein Foundation, will go a long way in helping the pantry provide hunger relief to members of our community in need.

We are especially grateful to John Barry, Sue Seppa, Christine Rice, Sue Toronto, Scott Bazydlo, Carrie Harding, and Melissa Platzman who oversaw the food drives within their schools. We would also like to thank all those who donated food, money, and time to the pantry for this important event.

Food donations are accepted year-round and may be left at the Food Pantry located on the bottom floor of the Northborough Town Hall.  Monetary donations may be mailed to the attention of the Northborough Food Pantry at 63 Main Street in Northborough. More information about the Northborough Food Pantry can be located at www.nfpantry.org.

The Northborough Food Pantry is staffed and run solely by volunteers allowing 100% of all donations to be used to purchase food and related items for the pantry.  The clients and volunteers of the Northborough Food Pantry extend a heartfelt thanks to you for your support.

Gratefully,

Northborough Food Pantry Board Members
