Top the Truck for the Putney Foodshelf

Putney Foodshelf asks for everyone’s help to Top the Truck on Wednesday, September 25, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., rain or shine. Once again, the truck will be parked in the Tavern parking lot between the Gleanery Restaurant and the Putney Town Hall. The goal is to fill the truck with bags of healthful, non-perishable foods. Volunteers will meet cars in the parking lot to take donations. Cash, check, and credit card donations will also be accepted at the truck. Sponsors of this, the sixth annual Top the Truck food drive, are J. D. McCliment’s Gastropub, Consolidated Communications, and Soundview Paper Company.

Preferred non-perishable items include canned foods of all kinds (tuna fish, fruits, vegetables, meats, soups and chili), cereals, pastas and pasta sauce, peanut
butter, boxed meals (macaroni & cheese, hamburger helper), and rice. The Putney Food Co-op is offering shoppers the opportunity to buy bulk-rate cases
of food on sale for the Top the Truck event. Order forms will be available at the store during the weeks leading up to the event through September 26.

We hope to see you on Wednesday!
