Food Share

 
 

Lamoille Community Food Share board members and volunteers participate in various events throughout the year. Area organizations and businesses also organize events for our benefit. We appreciate all of the help!

EVENTS

The Green Mountain Disc Golf Club once again chose Lamoille Community Food Share and The Waterbury Area Food Shelf to share the proceeds from their Winter fundraiser- Ice Bucket VIII. Last year the two food shelves received over $4000 each!  The event was held Jan 25th. The snow and wind did not stop this enthusiastic group! Click here for a video of the action.

Food Share Board Members staffed a table at the Stowe Wine and Food Classic, an annual event held at Trapp Family Lodge. We were able to chat with people attending the event and collected some food donations.

If you know of an event which will benefit Lamoille Community Food Share, please send us the details so we can post them here. lcfoodshare@gmail.com

We like to get out into the community to share what we are all about. In July we had a table at Art on Park in Stowe, thanks to Stowe Vibrancy. We also visited Big Lots.

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.

Kinney Drugs held a food drive in September for our benefit. Tabby is shown here with just some of the proceeds. Thanks to all of the staff at Morrisville Kinney’s and all of the customers who donated!

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!
