The Milford Food Pantry has been temporarily relocated because of Sunday’s fire at the Milford Methodist Church. Its interim location is at the the Cultural Center of the Greater Milford Historical Association and will be open at the regular hours of 9:30-11:30 AM Saturday for those who need assistance.

Officials say the pantry lost all its food, records and shelving in the fire and the pantry volunteers welcome donations of checks or non-perishable food to help them get re-settled and to re-stock their shelves. Special arrangements are being made to accept donations of checks and non-perishable foods at the Cultural Center from 3-6 PM this Friday, March 17.

Checks may also be mailed to Milford Food Pantry, PO Box 127, Milford, NY 13807. For further information on donations, contact Lori Solensten at 607-435-4658 To volunteer at the food bank, contact Laura Eggleston at 607-286-7255
