Town Clerk Food Collection for March 2017
|Date:||March 6, 2017|
Dear City of Derby Colleagues and Friends,
Thank you very much! With your help, we delivered over 100 boxes of pancake mix and bottles of syrup and, with the help of Derby High School, over 100 other food items to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank today. If you still have any Pancake Mix or Syrup please drop it off at City Hall or directly to St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank, 237 Roosevelt Drive, Derby, CT – 203.734.7577.
It’s March! Basketball is king, we are wearing green all month, and Spring will be here soon.
This month we will be collecting Canned Fruit for the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank.
Please consider donating some canned fruit and bring it to the Town / City Clerk’s Office by the end of March and we will deliver them.
I have attached a flyer, as requested, for your convenience.
Please forward to friends, relatives, associates and colleagues. We appreciate your support.
Thank you for your cooperation and possible participation.

Thought for March – “Leadership is action, not position.” – Fortune Cookie from Chinese Buffet near Derby Shop-Rite – 2-13-2017.
For those who may be new to our distribution list, the Derby City Hall staff, in lieu of a Holiday Secret Santa Gift, donated food to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry in December, 2015.
After discussions with the operators of the Food Bank, we asked them for monthly suggestions for food collections to concentrate on what is in short supply. We decided that we would start a monthly collection of one specific item to help them feed those in need in our City and the Valley.
Here is what we have collected so far:
January - Hamburger, Tuna, and Chicken Helper
February - Pancake Mix & Syrup
March – Canned Fruit
January – Jelly
February - Mayonnaise
March - Beef Stew
April - Baked Beans
May - Pancake Mix & Syrup
June - Canned & Boxed Potatoes
July - Hamburger, Tuna, and Chicken Helper
August - Macaroni and Cheese
September - Ready to Eat Soup
October - Tomato Sauce
November - Jelly and Marshmallow Cream
December - Coffee and Tea
