Wanted: Thanksgiving Fixings for Weald Bethel Food Pantry

Wanted: Thanksgiving Fixings for Weald Bethel Food Pantry

Fixings need for Weald Bethel Food Pantry
Cherryfield – Weald Bethel Food Pantry volunteers Morna and Elsie will do anything to help the Mission’s Weald Bethel Food Pantry and feed people. They were at BaySide & 4 Corners Shop and Save in the Town of Milbridge to help raise funds to buy turkeys for the Washington County Food Pantries. The fundraiser was very successful and the pantry has turkeys.

Thanks for helping your neighbors. Now we need the fixings. Will you please help with a donation of food or funds. We need pie filling, evaporated milk, stuffing mix, gravy, flour, sugar and/or stevia.

Our Weald Bethel Food Pantry is set up like a general store to offer nutritious food such as meat, dairy, eggs, whole-grain bread, and fresh fruits and vegetables that are often local and organic.

Last year we served over 4,000 individuals (1,700 households) who had an immediate need for food. Our service area includes the towns on either side of Route One from Steuben to Columbia Falls.

The pantry is located on our Downeast Campus just off Route One in Cherryfield. It is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. On Tuesdays, it is also open from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or in an emergency, call 546-5853. Learn More:
