Randolph Area Food Shelf -- Randolph Town Report 2011
 
Serving the community since 1977, the mission of the Food Shelf is for the charitable purpose of providing food supplies to people in need in the Central Vermont communities of Randolph, Braintree, Brookfield, and East Granville.

In 2009 we provided food supplies for over 350 individual families in our service area, of which approx. 75% of those served, are from Randolph. These 350 families represent over 1000 people, and are allowed to visit the Food Shelf twice each month. The Randolph Area Food Shelf is lead by a Board of Trustees and operates solely from the help of over 50 dedicated volunteers. There is no paid staff.

Our primary source of income comes from our annual letter generating donations from our service areas.  After over 30 years of being hosted by Bethany Church we have outgrown our space and the church is expanding.  In November, with the support and backing of Randolph National Bank, we secured a loan and purchased 12 Prince St., Unit 3, and have since reopened at this new location.  We are planning a campaign to repay the loan. 

Money appropriated from the Town of Randolph by vote at town meeting will help us maintain and continue our mission, helping to ensure that no one in our community goes hungry in these tough economic times. As the need for our services increase, the town appropriation is one way to help us meet our annual financial expenses.

Many thanks to the Randolph area community for your support! For more information please don’t hesitate to contact us by leaving a phone message at 802-431-0144, email at info@randolphareafoodshelf.org, or visit us on the web at www.randolphareafoodshelf.org.

 

Randolph Area Food Shelf -- Brookfield Town Report 2011

Serving the community since 1977, the mission of the Food Shelf is for the charitable purpose of providing food supplies to people in need in the Central Vermont communities of Randolph, Braintree, Brookfield, and East Granville.

In 2010 we provided food supplies for over 350 individual families in our service area, of which approx. 6% of those served are from Brookfield (22 households, representing 68 individuals). These 350 families represent over 1000 people, and are allowed to visit the Food Shelf twice each month. The Randolph Area Food Shelf is lead by a Board of Trustees and operates solely from the help of over 50 dedicated volunteers.  There is no paid staff.

Our primary source of income comes from our annual letter generating donations from our service area.  After over 30 years of being hosted by Bethany Church we had outgrown our space, and due to church renovations that space was no longer available.  In November with the support and backing of Randolph National Bank we secured a loan and purchased 12 Prince St., Unit 3. We are planning a capital campaign to repay that loan. 

Money appropriated from the Town of Brookfield by vote at town meeting will help us maintain and continue our mission, helping to ensure that no one in our community goes hungry in these tough economic times. As the need for our services increase, the town appropriation is one way to help us meet our annual financial expenses.

Many thanks to the residents of Brookfield and the Randolph area community for your generous support!
