Healthy Pantry Initiative comes to The Cornerstone

This past Thursday, we were honored to welcome two representatives from Foodlink at our Cornerstone building.

Through the “Healthy Pantry Initiative”, and with the help of Laura Held and Desiree Bass (pictured), we were able to reorganize and label our pantry shelves.

The goals of the Healthy Pantry Initiative are to “increase the accessibility, distribution, and consumption of healthy foods through the progressive adoption of strategies that support up to 5 objectives in emergency andsupplemental food distribution settings: increase client choice; market healthful products; emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, staples; promote additional resources; and plan for alternate eating patterns.” (https://tinyurl.com/ydbhrrnl)

A big shout out to Foodlink and especially Laura and Desiree for your help. Our pantry has never looked better!

We are always accepting donations of non-perishable foods and HBA supplies (unexpired only, please). Give Dee or Elly a call at 585-237-2600 to set up a time to drop off your donations or simply drop them off at our main office during business hours.

Medicaid Transportation Drivers WANTED!

We’re on the hunt for additional volunteer drivers so we can grow our Medicaid Transportation program!

The Medicaid Transportation program provides non-emergency transportation to and from medical appointments for all our Wyoming County residents. Neighbors helping neighbors…. that’s the good stuff!

We work with our drivers to ensure trips work with YOUR schedule. Drive as little or as much as you prefer. Earning potential can be substantial for drivers with open Monday – Friday availability.

You can download the Driver application here: Medical Transportation Application

Contact Debbie Fladie for more information or to get started as a driver by phone: 585-237-2600 x131 or by email: dfladie@wccainc.org
