Invitation to Participate in “Kids First”

Dear Wakefield Families,

The Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry has developed a program entitled “Kids First”. The purpose of this program is to provide food to families with school age children during the summer months. Many families receive free or reduced breakfast and/or lunch during the school year, but this heip is not available during the summer. This is where the food pantry can help. We can provide you with the added food items to help replace those meals.

During July and August, the food pantry will be open on four dates specifically to provide food for the “Kids First” program. If you have a need, we encourage you to come to the Amencal Civic Center, 467 Main Street, Wakefield to pick up breakfast and lunch foods for your family. We will provide foods such as: Aunt Jemima pancake mix, Mrs. Butterworth’s maple symp, Lender’s bagels, cream cheese, Amie’s Mac’n Cheese, Skippy Peanut Butter, Smucker’s Jelly, Apple & Eve juice boxes, Keebler crackers and Vanilla Wafers, Ellio’s Pizza, Tyson Chicken Nuggets, freezepops, Danimals yogurt, Polly-O string cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables. The dates and trmes we will be open are the following:

7/9 9-11:00am
7/19 6:30-8:00pm
8/13 9-11:00am
8/22 9:30-11:30am

You may come to all four of these dates. You must show proof of residency.  In order to have enough food available, we ask that you let us know you plan to participate. You may respond in one of the following ways:

  • Return the bottom portion of this slip to your school office by Friday 6/24/11.
