The month of June was another busy one for us at the Community Kitchen.
We received over 16,000 lbs of food from Foodshare, over 7,000 lbs of food from MidWest and over $8,500 from in kind donations.
We were able to serve 2,964 lunches and 2,133 dinners. We also continue to distribute groceries through the Vernon Housing Authority to over 100 households. We do this on Friday afternoons at the Court Towers for 54 families and an additional 50 bags/boxes are distributed throughout the other 4 housing authority properties. And this doesn’t go unappreciated. Carl, who resides at Court Towers, made our Friday distribution team some delicious Cinnamon sugar roasted pecans.
We are ever so grateful for all that is given to us so that we may give to others.
And in keeping with the tradition of giving to others, we would like to wish our very own Evelyn Snay a very happy 90th birthday. She has been with us at Cornerstone since its inception, and with gratitude for all that she has done and continues to do, we wish her many more birthdays to come.
HAPPY 90th BIRTHDAY EVELYN!
