Generous Donations

The East End is an expensive place to live, and the ongoing effects of the pandemic have made it even more so: Housing is scarcer and more costly than ever, and inflation is raising the price of just about everything, from heating oil to gas to food.

It is no surprise, then, that now more than ever, there are neighbors in need of food assistance. At the Springs Food Pantry, our mission is to help those who are food insecure, whether they are seniors on fixed incomes, working families who do not make enough to make ends meet, or seasonal workers who have been laid off.

We are beyond grateful for the people and organizations who step up and contribute to ensure that those in need have enough to eat. During the past year, Balsam Farms, Share the Harvest farm and Amber Waves farm have donated fresh, nutritious produce that our recipients are thrilled to receive. One Stop Market, Goldberg’s Bagels, Springs General Store, Carissa’s Bakery and New Light Breadworks also have been incredibly generous to the pantry, donating a wide variety of food products for our recipients.

We’d also like to thank all the individuals who gave throughout the year. We are in awe of the tremendous response and feel so blessed to live in a community where neighbors help neighbors.
