Bobbie Kosnik and Teresa Basalyga of Food for Families at Assistance League of Amador Valley were invited to Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry’s Grand Opening and tour of the new facility. Our chapter was among 150 guests who were specially invited to the Grand Opening and to tour the facility.
The Food Pantry is now located at 150 N L Street in Livermore. Reney, Manager of the Food Pantry, gave our chairs a personal tour of the new facility. Wow! It was spacious and will better serve the community’s needs.
The Food Pantry distributes free groceries to over 4,000 low-income Tri-Valley residents. ALAV was acknowledged for being the only group that supplies them milk and eggs on a weekly basis! It was a proud moment to be acknowledged for our contribution in helping them to serve those less fortunate.
For the calendar year June 2021 through May 2022, our membership has supported the Food Pantry. Our members shop together with funds raised by our chapter’s fundraising efforts and deliver on a weekly basis the following items:
- Over 40 gallons of milk
- 25 dozen of eggs
- Over 20-30 pounds of frozen meat
- Several bags of fruit, and
- Cases of flour, sugar and oil
It is so fulfilling to help others in our community who need a helping hand, especially during these trying post-pandemic times.
