Generally, the pantry receives free USDA food four times a year. Not so
many years ago, a truck was rented or a generous volunteer provided his
powerful truck to haul an old trailer for the food pickup in Cherryfield.

Nowadays, Good Shepherd coordinates the entire process so our volunteers
receive box after box as they arrive from the GS truck down our ramp with
rollers (which was a gift) through the overhead door (also a gift).

We never tire of giving thanks!

’til next week,
