“Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.” Sally Koch
The North Coventry Food Pantry is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve spent time over the past several years, stocking shelves, preparing food for pick up and collecting whenever I can. However, it never feels like I can give enough time and it always feels like their need is so great
When the Pottstown Mercury’s Police Reporter Brandie Kessler, who is a fellow High Street Yogi, was inspired to help local pantries, the idea to Fill the Community Media Lab with food became a reality. The goal is to collect 20,000 items and 1,000 containers of laundry detergent which will benefit area food pantries, including The Cluster Outreach Center, Norco Food Pantry and the Boyertown Area Multi-Service, as well as food pantries in Royersford, Spring City, Phoenixville, Collegeville and the Upper Perkiomen Valley. The Mercury has partnered with the Town Square Bloggers to reach out to the community and offer drop off points for foods.
I will be collecting for the North Coventry Food Pantry at 141 East High Street at High Street Yoga on the 2nd floor or on the 1st floor at The Academy of Massage Therapy and Bodyworks.
The North Coventry Food Pantry is need of jelly, canned pasta, canned meat, spaghetti sauce, fruit, and Mac and cheese. They always need toilet paper and paper towels.
