Community Food Pantry
Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG
Myself and my wife volunteer at a local food pantry in Naples Maine 2 days a month. The Crosswalk Food Pantry is a Non Denominational Christian food pantry serving 5 area towns feeding at least 50 families twice a month. The duties involve the pick up of food items from Wayside in South Portland, the unloading, distribution, area set up and sorting of various available food items. The available foods include bread , meat , vegetables . dairy, and some miscellaneous food items. The food is donated to the pantry by area supermarkets and farms.
The why is rather obvious. The number of food pantries in this area are constantly busy. Knowing that we somehow make it easier for those in need by our time is reward in itself. To make friendships with those we work with and those we serve is its own reward
