Dear Friends, Volunteers and Supporters of the Medfield Food Cupboard,
This past week the c communications. In the appeal we ask for the community’s help and support. The Food Cupboard depends on donations of money, food and time to keep our shelves filled and our organization running smoothly. Last year, with the assistance of the community, we were able to provide enough food for our clients to make over 4,000 meals — an accomplishment about which we can all feel proud.
Please visit our website to read our annual appeal newsletter or to donate to this important cause: medfieldfoodcupboard.com
For your dedication to our shared mission we are most grateful.

Turkey Bowl Food Drive
This year’s Thanksgiving Day “Turkey Bowl” football game will be held at Medfield High School. The Medfield Food Cupboard is teaming up with the Warrior football team and Warrior cheerleaders for a food drive at the field.
The Food Cupboard is encouraging the community to support the Warriors and the town by bringing a non-perishable, unexpired and unopened food donation to the annual Medfield vs. Dover Sherborn Turkey Bowl before half time. The game starts at 10 AM. Items most needed include: tuna, peanut butter, non- grape jelly, canned fruit, canned pasta and rice. (If it’s raining, please don’t bring any food packaged in cardboard.)
The Food Cupboard also noted: if residents are traveling at Thanksgiving or unable to make it to the game, they are always welcome to drop food donations in the bins at Shaw’s, the Medfield Public Library, St. Edward’s Church, the Senior Center, the Pfaff Center and the United Church of Christ.

Winter clothing items are most needed. All food and clothing donations will be sorted and given directly to the Food Cupboard and C2C on Saturday!
Postal Food Drive Saturday Successful
The Postal Food Drive was a great success this year and I am happy to report that, once again, we had an excellent turnout of community volunteers and donations. Not only did many of our neighbors take the time to place food out for their mail deliverers to collect, but volunteers, many who brought along their families, spent most of the beautiful Saturday afternoon sorting and shelving food for the Medfield Food Cupboard.
