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 Stowe Foliage Art and Craft Festival was held Oct 11-13 at the Stowe Events Field. Once again, Craftproducers was kind enough to provide us with a booth. Our Fall raffle prizes included art work by Don Hansen and Kelly Holt, a quilt made by Common Threads Quilt Guild, a big basket of Vermont food products donated by Pam Hammel, goodies from Elmore Mountain Farms, gift certificates from In Company and Curves, 10 coupons for Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, two quarts of maple syrup, a Vermont Teddy Bear and nuts from the Mapled Nut Company. Thanks to all of our donors- it was quite a selection!

Board member Betty Bevans presents Julie Egenberg with the Ben and Jerry’s coupons.

Board members Karen Loh and Jan Tichansky show off the beautiful quilt.

Once again, The folks at Stowe Mercantile hosted a visit from Santa Claus. There was cookie decorating, lots of cameras and a chance to see Santa. Stowe Mercantile donated $10 for every child. LCFS received a check for over $2000! Thanks to Marc and everyone who participated!

Lamoille Valley Veterinary Services is having a Food Drive- Pet Food, that is. Seen here is just some of the food they collected on our behalf last year. Our clients are very grateful for any help they can get in feeding their pets. As an added bonus, LVVS is raffling off a Lupine set with the proceeds going to Food Share! Thanks to everyone at LVVS and everyone who contributes or buys a raffle ticket!

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.

St John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church is hosting its Simple Soup Suppers. On Wednesdays during Lent, the folks at St John’s invite the community to share warm food and company. Doors open from 5:30 PM to 7 PM. Prices are $6 per person or $20 for a family of four. All proceeds go to Food Share! join them for a lovely meal. Dates this year are February 12, 19 and 26 and March 12 and 19.

Board President Joan Greene happily accepts checks from Chris Young of GMDCC!

For the month of June, Devon Williams of In Company Clothing in Stowe is offering 20% off one item when you bring in three or more cans of food. You will also be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate!

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.

We are happy to announce that the Lamoille Region Chamber of Commerce mixer on Wednesday August 6 will be held at our pantry. Community National Bank is our sponsor. There will be a raffle to benefit Food Share, food provided by Hoagie’s and lots of good company. The mixer will be held from 5-6:30 PM. Click here for directions. We hope to see you there!
