With the Corona Virus we have closed the pantry down to clients coming inside. What we have them do is stay in their cars, we take the red wagon out to the bottom of the ramp, and the volunteers go back inside. Then the client comes and takes the cart to their car to unload and bring it back to the bottom of the ramp. The cart in wiped down with disinfectant outside. Then brought in and we load up for the next client. The hardest part for me is not talking one on one with the clients, asking how they are doing, how’s the family etc. I know all the volunteers feel the same.
I would like to share a conversation with a client that came in, Paul took the cart out to her car and when she saw how much was in it she almost started to cry. I was standing on the ramp I waved to her and said hi. She brought the cart back to the ramp and said that there was a card inside. Then she started to cry and said if it wasn’t for all of you I wouldn’t have made it thru. She threw a kiss and said love you all, take care and stay safe and Thank You for all you do.
Some are unable to be with family right now, the only contact they might have is the Food Pantry.
We are looking for Volunteers to help in the Pantry if you would like to, or know anyone who would like to help, have them call the office 603-447-3851 and leave a message and we will get back to them.
Until further notice we cannot accept any plastic or reusable bags. We have ones that we buy from a distributor. Thank you
The CVCC Food Pantry is open by Appointment Only Tuesdays 9am – 1pm
