Food Shelf thanks Williston for Fourth

What an incredible community we live in! During the Fourth of July parade and evening fireworks display, Williston donated over $1,800 and a pickup truck full of food to the Community Food Shelf! This generous support will completely fund our Summer Program for Kids, which provides breakfast and lunch supplies to children who, during the school year, receive these subsidized meals at school. We believe that no Williston child should ever go hungry and, clearly, so do many, many of you.

The Food Shelf is currently looking for volunteers (18 years and older) to staff our Tuesday evening (5:30 to 7:30) and Saturday morning (9 to 11) shifts. If you can spare two hours a month, please e-mail us at Iwanttohelp@willistonfoodshelf.com or stop by to sign up during our open hours. We are located at 121 Connor Way above Belle’s Cafe in Maple Tree Place.
