Food Pantry Updates – Fall 2017
We hope everyone has had a great summer, and we are excited to kick off another school year at the Food Pantry! We have some updates and important dates to share, as well as a renewed call for Food Pantry Adopters for 2017-2018.
Fall 2017 Distribution Dates
We have attached the Fall 2017 Food Pantry flyer outlining the upcoming distribution dates. Please share this with your departments and students who may be interested.
We have added two training dates to our calendar for those who would like to become volunteers at Food Pantry distributions. These trainings are geared specifically toward members of the community who want to assist during pantry distribution hours one or more times per semester. Both trainings will taking place during distribution hours at 6 East 16th Street, 12th Floor Cafe.
Tuesday, October 3 – 4-5pm
Friday, October 13 – 1-2pm
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the date you’ll be attending. If you aren’t available during pantry distribution times, but still are interested in volunteering, see below for other ways to help!
Delivery Unloading: All Hands on Deck
We need help unloading deliveries several times throughout the semester. If you are interested in being added to a mailing list for when these deliveries are arriving, please email email@example.com Be sure to include the best way to contact you.
Adopt a Month
We were very lucky to have so many supportive departments during the 2016-2017 academic year. Participation included: adoption of the food pantry for a month through coordinating food drives; support during distributions (unpacking deliveries, stocking and labeling); and promotion and marketing during the month that they adopted. The contributions made through this initiative were crucial to the Food Pantry’s success during its first year of existence, and now we need adopters for this year! If you, your department, office, division or organization are able or interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Andrea MacFarlane at 212-229-5900 x3965 for more information.
Thank you for your support of the Food Pantry, and please let us know if you have any questions or if you are interested in any of the opportunities listed above.
