Winslow Community Cupboard food pantry – which has served more than 20,087 food-insecure households in Central Maine so far in 2023 – is urgently seeking new one-time and recurring monetary donations to meet surging demand. According to Operations Manager Bruce Bottiglierie, the food pantry, which also operates a Mobile Food Pantry that directly serves locations in Waterville, Skowhegan, Fairfield, and more than a dozen other local towns, experienced a 39 percent increase in the number of households needing food-pantry service just from March through August of this year.
“Between the two programs, we have provided more than 1.3 million pounds of food this year to our neighbors in need – and demand just keeps shooting up and up.”
Bottiglierie said he was especially hopeful that area businesses and individuals might choose to donate on a regular basis. Automatic monthly or one-time donations may be set up via PayPal at WCCPantry.com by clicking on the “Donate Now” button on the homepage, which also accepts credit card donations. Donations via check are also enormously appreciated, and may be made by mailing a check payable to “Winslow Community Cupboard” to: Winslow Community Cupboard / 12 Lithgow St. / Winslow, ME 04901. For more information, please contact Bruce Bottiglierie, Winslow Community Cupboard, at 207-616-0076 or Winslow Cupboard@Gmail.com.
