Feast senior meal program partners Just Basics, Inc., Montpelier Senior Activity Center, and Good Taste Catering, would like to thank all the community members, business owners and individual donors that supported our October 18th Harvest Fundraiser Dinner and Silent Auction.
Dozens of volunteers contributed time in selling tickets, serving food, setting and cleaning up, and more. Trinity United Methodist Church loaned tableware. The Angie Zorzi Quartet entertained the lively crowd with pre- and post-dinner music, a huge hit that inspired some to dance! Cabot Creamery Cooperative donated cheese and butter for the menu. Generous Silent Auction Donors included two dozen local businesses and individuals mentioned in our column on a separate page.
Senior meal programs such as Feast are vital to the nutrition and socialization of many, and the partnership we established between a non-profit, municipal and for-profit is proving to be a successful model. Feast is produced at the Senior Center and supported by federal funds, the City, grants, guest fees and donations.
Professionals and volunteers work together to provide delicious and nutritious home delivered meals five days weekly (Feast at Home), on-site meals each Tuesday and Friday (Feast Together), and take-out lunches for the public every Thursday 11am-1pm (Feast to Go, an ongoing fundraiser).
To learn more or make a reservation, call 262-6288. Request to be added to the Feast e-letter to get menus. Visit us on Facebook. Inquire about volunteering. Make tax-deductible donations to Just Basics with Feast written in the memo. Best of all, come and taste what Feast is all about! Thanks for all the support that the whole community has shown in the first four months of Feast!
