To the editor,
Thank you for your very informative article on the Skaneateles Ecumenical Pantry. I do need to correct a couples pieces of information. Our pantry purchases the majority of our food from the Food Bank of Central New York. Since we are members of the food bank, Skaneateles is able to purchase food at a very large discount. This means for every $1.00 we spend at the food bank we receive a $1.87 value in return for food.
Additionally we receive twice a week assorted bakery items from Tops at no cost. We share these with the seniors and our clients. The story also failed to include Holy Trinity Lutheran Church as one of the contributors to the pantry.
All of these services make Skaneateles a very successful pantry.
