This morning, I was pleased to represent Foodshare at the Faith Seventh Day Adventist Church for their Community Guest day.  The Church operates 3 Angels Community Services, which, among other services, runs a food pantry for Hartford residents.  When their pantry opens each week, they sometimes serve as many as 300 households each time.

The Church wanted to recognize Foodshare for the support we give to them in this ministry.  I was especially happy that, in presenting the plaque, they talked about all of the dedicated Foodshare staff and volunteers.  So I really did accept this award on behalf of all of you.

And I reminded the members of the congregation that this really is a partnership.  Foodshare exists to support those local food pantries like 3 Angels.  And they are the ones on the front lines of doing the work to end hunger.  So, even while they were thanking Foodshare, I couldn't thank the church, its members, and the 3 Angels volunteers enough for what they do!
