together we will transform food and food will transform us.

Hey there! How are you doing?

It's hard to believe we've been living in a changed world for over two months now. As challenging as this time has been, we have received incredible support from our community. Our volunteers have gone above and beyond to help us through the many changes made at our food pantries. We are also blown away by the response to our Kick Covid fundraising campaign. 

Never have we doubted the generosity and kindness of our community, but this experience has certainly proven that we are surrounded by some pretty amazing people. 

We hope you and your loved ones are hanging in there and finding a new "normal" during these especially abnormal times.

We are thrilled to announce an incredibly successful wrap of Kick COVID! Thanks to the help of our community and supporters, we have achieved our goal of raising $25,000 throughout the month-long campaign. This news comes at a significant time as next week would have been the launch of CFC's 7th annual fundraiser, Give Hunger the Boot. Although disappointing to not share this special tradition with our community there is still much to be celebrated.
All funds received throughout the campaign will be used to strengthen and grow the programming at Comfort Food Community. During these challenging times, these programs have proved to be essential to the well-being of a great number of individuals throughout Washington County. Over the past month, the support of nearly 300 donors has allowed CFC to continue responding to the increased need for food assistance and health resource navigation in our community and beyond.
Comfort Food Community would like to give our sincerest thanks to each and every person who has made a contribution to Kick COVID. We would also like to give special acknowledgement to the following local businesses for sponsoring the campaign: Lakeside General Store, H&R Block, Currin Compliance, Patane Architecture, PLLC, Black Dog Media, and The Greenwich Journal and Salem Press.
Together we have proven that although we are apart, we can still come together to make a difference.
