The St. George Community Development Corp. is excited to announce the creation of a food pantry for residents of the peninsula. Called the St. George Community Cupboard, it will be located at 47 Main Street, in a room adjacent to the CDC’s office.
After only 3 months in operation, the Community Cupboard was serving over 20 St. George families with more than half of those families visiting the pantry weekly. We couldn’t have been happier with this growth. Our shelves remained stocked thanks to the many donations from community members.
After our first 6 months in operation, the community cupboard now serves 41 St. George households. Our growth has led us to the expected next steps which include the hiring of a Food Pantry Manager who can focus 100% on the needs of our clients and membership into the Good Shepherd Food Bank which will allow us to use donations even more wisely with their reduced food costs.
The Community Cupboard is run by local volunteers and is open for clients each week on Thursdays, except for major holidays and snow storms. In addition to food, the pantry carries some hygiene products. We are hoping to establish some community gardens in which folks can grow food for themselves or for the pantry. If you are interested in becoming a client, in volunteering for the Cupboard, in becoming a community gardener, or in donating non-perishable goods, please stop by the Town Office, or the CDC office, or call us at 372-2193 for more information.
