Food pantry grateful to Triton community

To the editor:

Our heartfelt thanks go to the Triton High School community for their generous donation of food and money to the food pantry at the Byfield Community Methodist Church.

We started the food pantry together with help from the Newbury Council on Aging and in consultation with the Board of Health, because we believe a person’s spiritual well-being is not separate from the well-being of the whole person.

Though Triton’s emphasis is on education, their sports, music, arts, drama and other activities show their dedication to the whole person also. Their effort in promoting the food drive demonstrates their concern not only for their school community, but for the community at large.

By their actions, the students, faculty, and administration have made our communities more whole, stronger and a better place to live.

The food pantry is open to anyone in the community. You don’t need to be part of the church or know someone from there to participate in it. Hours are 1 to 3 p.m. Fridays.
