Middlebury Lions fill up the food pantries

MIDDLEBURY — Twenty-six members of the Middlebury Lions Club completed their annual “Food from the Heart” food drive on the Saturday before Easter. The food drive is conducted in support of the CVOEO and HOPE food shelves.
Once again the Middlebury community demonstrated their outstanding generosity by donating just over 2.5 tons of food in only six hours. One community resident filled an entire shopping cart with goods to donate. Other community members preferred to quietly donate cash in lieu of goods.
The Middlebury Lions also added their own cash contribution — making a total cash gift of $2,000 to be shared between Middlebury’s food pantries. Many thanks go out to area grocers:  Hannaford, Kinney Drugs, Middlebury Natural Foods CO-OP, Pratt’s Store, and Shaw’s. Half of the goods were delivered to CVOEO that same day.
