Community Food Pantry of Kent County

Fall 2010...look who's "living united" in Kent County to help those in need...
Thanks to the efforts of Jim Fouss, Kent County’s Community Food Pantry received a grant of $16,000 from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. The grant is being used to conduct workshops to help Food Pantry clients eat better and shop smarter. The workshops are supported by Washington College SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise), and Marcia Yeager, a dietitian. Yeager has developed recipes and a program to help clients make better choices when they buy and prepare food for themselves and their families and Washington College SIFE, led by Professor Susan Vowels (see photo below) and Aundra Weissert will help clients with budgeting and finding the best way to spend their food income.
