Madison residents and organizations continue to support the pantry and help keep the shelves stocked with food. Thank you to the First Congregational Church, Rich & Ellen Levin, DHHS Girls Field Hockey Team, Brownie Troop #4070, Bob & Shirley Green, North Madison Church, Stop & Shop, Cumberland Farms, Robert’s Supermarket, Cohen’s Bagels, Subway, Peter Parisi, Elizabeth Root, Carol Bullard and N2N.

MCS would like to recognize Lynda Enright. Lynda is the VP of Madison Community Services, a Supervisor at the Food Pantry and the lead shopper for CT. Food Bank in East Haven. Lynda, also, coordinates the “Youth of America Program” which consists of students from the High School and Middle School. Every Tuesday these students volunteer to stock the shelves at the pantry. Lynda organizes the groups and shuttles the students from DHHS to the pantry and when necessary supplies a ride home. Needless to say, the young people are the “backbone and future of the pantry”. By volunteering at the pantry the students are able to fulfill any community service requirements that they might need. Lynda’s dedication to MCS Food Pantry and the “Youth of America” is invaluable. Margaret and I would like to thank her for her continuous commitment and her friendship.
