Community Connections

We are fortunate to be in a community which thrives on helping one another. We are proud of our connections with local businesses and other community organizations. Neighbors helping neighbors is the way to go.

For the month of April Hannaford will donate $1.00 to LCFS for every Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Bag sold in our Morrisville Hannaford. This is particularly timely as we are trying to decrease the amount of plastic we are using in the pantry. Help your neighbors and help keep excess plastic out of the waste stream.

Curves of Morrisville held their annual food drive in March. They offered free membership to anyone bringing in food. Thanks to Curves and their clients!

Stowe Middle School is holding an Empty Bowls Event to benefit LCFS. Join them on Thursday May 2 from 5:30-6:45. $5 buys a bowl of soup and for $10 you can keep the bowl! You can stay aftrewards for a performance of Cinderella at 7 PM.

Janet Martinez of Burt's Irish Pub in Stowe encourages her customers to play games with the proceeds going to LCFS. We cannot thank Janet enough for all of her support!



Sara Kline was voted Favorite Employee of the Year by the customers of Kinney Drugs. This was not just for the Morrisville store where she works but for the whole area! Sara was able to choose a charity to receive $1000 in her name and she chose LCFS! Congratulations to Sara and many thanks for choosing us.

Stowe Mercantile held their annual Photos with Santa event. They donated $10 for every child who had their photo taken with Santa. LCFS received $2750! This little elf helped to sign everyone in.

Big Lots chose LCFS as the beneficiary for their  promotion to celebrate the refurbishment of their Morrisville store. From September 14- October 27 Big Lots  donated $5 to LCFS each time a Big Rewards loyalty member redeems their rewards at the Morrisville store. We received over $7000!

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on September 14 with Board Members Joan Greene and Darsey Moon and State Senator Rich Westman and State Representative Dan Noyes in attendance.

We want to send a BIG thank you to our Morrisville Hannaford. For many years they have participated in our FRESH Coupon Program. Since 2015, thanks to Act 148, they have provided us with produce, bakery deli and dairy products that might otherwise have gone into the waste stream. They have chosen us to be one of the beneficiaries of their sale of reusable bags and for the month of October we will receive $5 for each of the Fresh Cookbooks they sell. When the Board decided to do away with plastic bags, we approached Hannaford to purchase some of their bags and, instead, they donated 700.

Global Foundries makes it fun for their employees to participate in a food drive. Board Member Jan Tichansky is shown here with one of the many sculptures built with food.

The Lamoille County Players chose LCFS to benefit from a share of the proceeds from the first weekend of their Fall Play. They even had buy-one-get-one free. It was a great production!
