On August 6 Food Share hosted the Lamoille Region Chamber of Commerce mixer at our pantry. Community National Bank was our sponsor. They provided wonderful food made and served by Hoagie’s. They also donated six $50 gift certificates to the Lamoille County business of the winner’s choice. And they donated a check for $500! We can’t thank them enough!

Interim Manager Sara Babcock shared some info about Food Share and the LNFP.

Rocktoberfest was held in Morrisville on Saturday, October 4. There was good turnout despite the rain. We had fifteen entries for the chili cook-off! The winners were Edna Elwood (KEDNA) for meat with beans, Casey English of CCV for meat, no beans, and Deb Papineau of Deb’s Place for vegetarian. The winners were given certificates and a $50 gift card to the Lamoille County business of their choice (supplied by Community National Bank). Thanks to all who entered and everyone who came, tasted and voted for the winners!

Karen Loh and Joan Greene staffed our booth where we raffled off a handmade quilt donated by Common Thread Quilt Guild, a Keurig coffee machine and a VT Teddy bear.

Board members Heather Bradley, Betty Bevans and Pam Hammel staffed the chili cook-off.

Marc Sherman and Trudy of Stowe Mercantile got into the spirit of Christmas. Each year they have Santa come visit the store. For each child who visits Santa they donate $10 to Lamoille Community Food Share. With free cookie decorating, the kids have a great time and Food Share gets a big boost. Our thanks to Marc and Trudy and everyone who participated! We received $2000 this year!

Saturday January 31 is the date for the Green Mountain Disc Golf Club’s 2015 Ice Bucket IX! For the third year in a row, GMDC has chosen LCFS and the Waterbury Area Food Shelf to share in the proceeds of this Winter fundraiser. Last year they raised $9504 which was the third highest total in the world!

The event is held at the Center Chains DGC in Waterbury Center. Competitors pay to play as well as drumming up sponsors. These intrepid folks then spend a (usually very cold) day out playing disc golf and having a great time. For a video of last year’s event click here.

The winners of the tournament get first pick of prizes. We want to thank everyone who has donated prizes including:

2 $25 gift certificates for Rock Art Brewery
a $25 gift certificate for Lost Nation Brewery
1 pair of Enprotex gloves
a Cellars at Jasper Hill gift box valued at $85





We are proud to say that we will be a sponsor of the Lake Elmore Polar Splash for 2015, taking place on February 14. LCFS was the recipient of the proceeds from this event in 2013 and we are happy to support Morrisville Rotary and this year’s recipient the Lamoille Restorative Center.
