We are continuing to check everyone’s proof of residency for 2022 during February. Documentation should be a bill, such as a utility bill, insurance bill, etc., or a mortgage/lease agreement. A Vermont Hunting/Fishing license or auto insurance paperwork can be used as well if they contain your current home address. Unfortunately, a driver’s license and/or car registration can NOT be used for proof of residency.

Please continue to WEAR A MASK, even while waiting in your car. Volunteers are also wearing masks. If you can wear double masks for a short time, it would be much appreciated. We want to keep everyone safe, visitors and volunteers alike.

As much as we would like to go back to inviting you in to shop, the time is still not right. Please be prepared to complete a grocery list and a perishables list from your car. We will put together your groceries as quickly as we can and get you on your way.

Weather permitting, there are two tables outside the Food Shelf with miscellaneous items. Please take only what you will use.

Donors, please watch for a list of groceries from our shopping list later this week. We will put this information in a separate post so you have up-to-date information on the types of groceries we distribute. As a reminder, please do not leave donations outside the building when we are not open. Volunteers are at the Food Shelf on Wednesdays at 11 AM to prepare for the day. Please feel free to stop by and drop off donations between 11 AM and 6 PM on Wednesdays.

Help us spread the word to those that may not see the Front Porch Forum, Facebook, or website posts!
