Jackson Cupboard Needs More Food

78 Jackson Hole Families in need were provided with all the fixings for Thanksgiving dinners this year, thanks to donations from Albertsons grocery store – and as the holiday season ramps up, Jackson Food Cupboard Coordinator Amy Brooks says so does the need. She says the cupboard is going through a lot more food because of the off-season and the increased unemployment from October. Brooks says while not all the food collected during the Boy Scout food drive in October is gone, supplies are being quickly depleted.  She says there is always a need for extra items on the shelves.  At this time, she says the schools are doing a food drive for the cupboard and the cupboard is accepting donations of food at their door. Brooks suggests the best time to bring food by the cupboard, located in the basement of St. John’s Episcopal Church is between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday and Thursday when volunteers are on hand to put the food on the shelves.  Brooks adds that the Jackson Cupboard is in need of one volunteer to pick up donated bread and meat from Smiths Grocery Store every Thursday morning around 9:00 am.

    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
