Richmond Area Food Pantry Participates in Day of Caring

The Richmond Area Food Pantry is participating in Richmond Schools’ Day of Caring on Friday, May 19.  Approximately 15 students will descend on the pantry that morning around 9 a.m. to put in 3 raised vegetable beds.  Nathan Curtis of Boy Scout Troop 610, has been working on this project to earn his Eagle merit badge for the past few months, fundraising, purchasing materials and building the vegetable beds.  This garden will provide the food pantry with much-needed fresh vegetables for its clients.  The students will also be spending their time raking, pruning and mulching the flower beds around the pantry. Baked goodies and drinks will be provided for participants.  The RAFP is located at 15 Spruce Street in Richmond; the community is welcome to join in the activities.  

For more information, contact the food pantry at 607-2777, their Facebook page or richmondfoodpantry.me@gmail.com.
