What service can be done during this pandemic, consistent with prudent social distancing?
We have been continuing to support the Reading Food Pantry.  The Food Pantry is very busy with more than usual requests.  We are continuing to help the Food Pantry with the weekly food run into the Greater Boston Food Bank.  If you can help with this, please email Art Hayden who coordinates this with Bruce and Phyllis Maxwell at the Food Pantry.  The Food Bank Run is each Thursday, leaving from the Old South Church at around 10:15 am.
The Food Pantry is also changing how they allow their customers pick out and pick up their food.  Right now, it appears that they have adequate volunteers, but they will reach out to us if they can use more hands.
