From the Medfield Food Cupboard –
Put a Little Love in Your Shopping Cart this September
Almost six months have passed since Massachusetts began experiencing the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, the Medfield Food Cupboard has worked steadfastly and successfully to continue its mission of providing supplemental and emergency food to all Medfield residents in need.
As we approach the Fall, we are once again in need of several essential shelf-stable food items. “Due to low inventories of these items at the Food Cupboard, we are reaching out to our neighbors for their support through a month-long, targeted food drive starting September 1st,” noted Abby Marble, Director of Food Donations.
The Food Cupboard’s most needed food items are: hearty soups, rice pilaf, solid white tuna in water, canned fruits in juice, canned or jarred tomato products, macaroni & cheese and grape jelly. “September, coincidently, is Hunger Action Month – a month where people all over America stand together to fight hunger. With this said, we are asking folks to please consider purchasing these needed food items for our clients. This food drive will help feed our neighbors in need,” continued Marble. “We are so grateful for the community’s ongoing and committed support — our community is truly remarkable.”
The food drive will run the whole months of September. A trailer provided by the Department of Public Works will be parked in front of the Police/Fire Station in which donations can be dropped off. Please do not go inside in the Police Station. “We extend our heartfelt thanks to the DPW and to Police Chief Michelle Guerette for facilitating this drive for us,” added Marble.
