Food Share

Thanksgiving 2020

Thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers and the generosity of our community, Thanksgiving 2020 was a great success! We handed out bags of fixings  and turkeys to 791 families.

Roland Lajoie of WLVB once again spearheaded Chris' Challenge. This year he asked everyone to send donations so we could purchase turkeys. That made it easier to handle them.

The faith community of Stowe ran their Share For Thanksgiving to raise money to purchase all of the trimmings. Many thanks to St John's in the Mountains Episcopal Church, Blessed Sacrament, Jewish Community of Greater Stowe, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stowe and the Stowe Community Church.

Shugah Cookie Baking Company ran a promotion, donating cookies to LCFS for each pie purchased. They also asked their customers to buy cookies directly.

Bourne's Energy for helping us with reusable bags, donating turkeys and helping to fill the bags.

We have so many people to thank:

Demars Properties for donating storage space so we could collect all of the food needed to fill our bags.

Mac's Market in Stowe for accepting all of our orders in this difficult time

Price Chopper for ordering our turkeys

Morristown Elementary School for letting us use their freezer space

Shaw's Supermarket in Stowe for donating turkeys and fixings and in Waterbury for handling some orders

Jeff Foss at Lamoille Trash Services for handling our mountains of cardboard

Hunger's Hard Baking's Easy brought a carload of goodies to share with our neighbors.

Thanks to Susan  for organizing the packing and to all those who participated.

Special thanks to Kevin and Adam for all of their work in purchasing, moving and giving out all of the food.

And thanks to our volunteers for all of their help throughout the process.

We are incredibly grateful to a community who supports us in so many ways: by sending financial donations, bringing in food, holding food drives, volunteering their time and even obtaining stuffing at the last minute! This is truly a community effort.
