St Joseph Parish Food Pantry
Council: 11376 - BRIDGTON-FRYEBURG
Tom Leonard, 4th Degree Knight, and Joe Balchunas, 1st Degree Knight, assisted the St. Joseph Church, Bridgton Food Pantry on June 22, 2021. Tom worked there for about 4 hours setting up tables, displaying food, assisting clients, and then putting food away for stock, putting carriages away, and cleaning tables. Joe worked for about 3 hours that day doing the same tasks. St Joseph’s Food Pantry services essentially the towns of Bridgton, Fryeburg, and Naples in providing food (dry goods, canned goods, cereals, breads, snacks, packaged milk, and fresh vegetables) for indigent families. The Food Pantry takes place in Bridgton, with clients coming to pick up food. This was the first day clients were allowed to come in to the facilities and choose what they needed. This month, 16 families were served. Each family generally has 2-7 family members.
