Epsom Food Pantry


Good morning, everyone.  It has been a busy week at the Pantry.  Our usual staff faithfully manning the store.


We had a bit of a problem with our air conditioner Saturday, so I zipped to Sears and got another one. Now let me tell you a story. When I was at the store and ready to check out, a person stepped up and insisted on giving it to us free. I was stunned.  This young man told me someone had done him a great favor and he was looking around for something or someone to  do a favor in return.


Thank you so much young man. We also received a marvelous check from St. Stephens Church in Pittsfield.


Those folks are so wonderful to our Pantry.   And of course the gentleman who gives us either milk or eggs weekly, I thank you so so much.


Our wants are the usual: cream soups, rice a roni, and jams or jelly. My garden is not doing well.  My neighbor’s is outstanding.  I need a miracle.


Until next time,
