Our Food Pantry is now also an active member of the Medford Food Project. This on-going project collects food every two months during the second week of the month from area residents and delivers it to the new Central Medford High School (formerly South Medford High School) where it is divided between twenty some area food pantries.
Betty and Charlie Burgess, our Vice President and President of the Food Pantry at the time, were awarded the Chamber of Commerce Community Award for the month of January at the Medford County Commissioners Meeting on January 2, 2011. Several officers and guests attended.
