After several years being closed, the Valley Food Pantry has reopened at a new location. Bruce G. Fowler opened the Food Pantry in the 1990s with the help of the Warren United Church. Other area businesses helped fund the Food Pantry including the Waitsfield Fayston Telephone Co., Northfield Savings Bank, the Valley Rotary, the Waitsfield Masonic Lodge #77 and the Vermont Food Bank in Barre.U.S.D.A. commodities are available and the Food Pantry is accessible to all in need and offers fresh and frozen vegetables, meat, canned and dry goods and prepared foods as well as toiletries, diapers, paper products and cleaning supplies.
"If we don't have it, we will try to get it," said Fowler.
"We have more than 12 years experience, traveling from Granville to Middlesex. I am fully dedicated to reopening the Pantry and thank all The Valley people who have donated time, energy and funding," Fowler said.
He plans to dedicate the reopening of the pantry in fond memory of the late Dorothy Pamucina. For more information, donations, appointments and delivery options call him at 496-4554.
