FEAST News & Updates
New Kitchen Equipment in the FEAST Kitchen, and Energy-Saving Support from Green Mountain Power, as reported by WCAX!
Just before the holidays, this happened in a flash, thanks to collaboration of many people and organizations. We're thrilled with the upgrades AND energy efficiency improvements!
Volunteers still needed for FEAST!
Donate to FEAST!
There are dozens of items we need to purchase or replace to get our kitchen back in smooth running order. Won’t you consider an end-of-year, tax-deductible gift we can use toward those needs? We have sent an appeal in the mail, but you can also donate online. If you happen to have a whetstone for sharpening knives to donate, please contact Kim.
Learn more about Chef Shalonda James!
As many of you know, we recently hired a new Chef in the FEAST Kitchen, and the feedback we’re hearing about the quality and taste of Chef Shalonda’s meals has been awesome! In between her busy hours in the kitchen and preparing for the holidays, she kindly answered some questions to help the community get to know her better, and we published the Q&A, and other FEAST news, in our January newsletter, p.5. Thanks, Chef!
Just Basics, Inc. and Montpelier Food Pantry News
With funding from National Life Group Foundation, Just Basics, Inc., is launching a major air ventilation improvement project at Trinity Church. Until further notice, however, the Montpelier Food Pantry will continue to serve patrons curbside. The hope is that with a new ventilation system, the Pantry will be able to move operations back indoors at Trinity, and patrons will return to shopping for food themselves, rather than putting in orders and picking up outside. As a reminder, the Pantry is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, from 10am til noon. Patrons can access the online order form and pick up provisions, or request home delivery, which is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
