On Thursday, October 1st, we had the opportunity to visit HIS Pantry at Sacred Heart St. Francisc de Sales, and speak with Diana Center. Diana told us about the pantry and the work they do to address food insecurity in Bennington. They open their pantry twice per week, and guests can come once every month to receive food and other staples. We learned that there are many food and meal assistance programs for folk in and around Bennington. We also learned that Mount Anthony Middle School has donated lots of fresh apples and other produce this Fall. We are excited to partner with HIS Pantry in providing them with fresh, local produce throughout the season in 2016.
