News from the Centre Street Food Pantry:   Headed to the Market?    A nice variety of soups and canned fruit is very much in demand!  Other ideas:  baking items and condiments to cook with.

Please continue to leave your donations on the right side bench in the long hall – along with vocally spreading the word about the Pantry!  Thank you

Thank you!
