Open Door Food Pantry–It’s A Good Thing!

So yesterday, Lily and I went to the Open Door Food Pantry to shoot an episode of Inspired Cooking which will air next week and probably for a couple of weeks.  The show was about fun and easy ideas to use your holiday leftovers in a cost effective manner because I feel that throwing away food is like flushing money down the drain–and I don’t want to do it!

Anyway, Julie LaFontaine, the Executive Director of the Open Door, Lily and I had a great time doing the show, the food came out delicious and a good time was had by all.  The point of this is that there are lots of families on Cape Ann that need our help.  Families have been hit hard in this economy and donating a holiday dinner to a needy family is the right thing to do if you can afford to help out.

This is what your $30.00 will buy for a family in need:

Holiday Meal Basket Donation Form

Each basket contains all the fixings a family of four will need to prepare a festive holiday meal.  Just click on the link and everything you need to know is right there.

Baskets include:

  • Turkey (14-16 pounds)
  • Stuffing Mix
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots*
  • Butternut squash
  • Apples
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Dinner Rolls*
  • Gravy

Please help out our neighbors who might be struggling right now.  According to Julie, those who are using the pantry are mostly working families who just can’t make ends meet.  People are suffering everywhere and if you can help, please do.  Here is the information below.

And if I can nominate a good egg, that would be Julie LaFontaine!
