Food Bank To Enjoy Bountiful Blessings



Food Bank To Enjoy Bountiful Blessings

The Bountiful Blessings project, a collaborative effort of churches and schools in the northern tier to feed needy families at Easter, will donate a $1200 surplus to the Trehab Food Bank which supports Susquehanna County. This overage signifies the deep commitment of Susquehanna County businesses and residents to their neighbors in need and will be particularly helpful to the food bank during the summer days when school is not in session and more food is needed by families. The project, which is centered at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Montrose, fed 700 families during the Easter season of 2009. Individuals and families listed with the Food Bank, Interfaith and other local agencies were provided with a complete Easter dinner basket that included ham, vegetables, potatoes/macaroni and cheese, canned fruit, bread, and holiday candies. The baskets were distributed on Wednesday, April 8. Three distribution sites were available this year: St. Paul’s, Montrose; St. Mark’s, New Milford; and Christ Church, Forest City. Scholars at our local schools collected many of the nonperishable items. Elk Lake and Blue Ridge signed on to contribute canned fruit, while the Montrose Area School District collected canned vegetables. Both Forest City and Mountain View School Districts were in charge of macaroni and cheese and Susquehanna Community School District supplied boxed potatoes. Those wishing to contribute to next year’s Easter Dinner Basket Project may send a check to St. Paul’s Church, 60 Church St., Montrose, PA 18801-0314. The check should be made out to “St. Paul’s Outreach” with the notation “Bountiful Blessing, 2010” in the memo line.
