"Letter from the President"
(June 2024)

Dear Friends,

Where is the time going! In just a few short weeks, school will be out and kids will be home for the summer. While this is a fun time for most, it is often stressful for many. This is the time of year when more households face food insecurity. Parents, grandparents and guardians will skip meals to make sure their kids eat.
Kids are home and SNAP benefits do not increase. East Irondequoit has a free meal program but not everyone can get there. This is when families rely on us even more.

We have already seen a sharp increase in the needs of our community. There are new senior housing apartments that have been built to bring more seniors and adults with disabilities. We are seeing a sharp increase in Ukrainian and Turkish families. Families are struggling with the increased costs of virtually everything. Food, gas, clothes, utilities. Even at the Dollar Store, nothing is $1 anymore. We are seeing several households that have been displaced from their homes. As you already know, we have a large increase in the number of weekly backpacks we provide throughout the school year. The struggle is real.

Although we are at a new location, we are more visible, and we have tables outside, PLEASE, please do not leave food items outside our door. Although our hours aren’t convenient to everyone you CAN drop off food donations at the Irondequoit Library, The Ridge Culver Fire Dept and the Irondequoit Community Center.

My next newsletter won’t be until July so once again, we would like to thank our amazing weekly volunteers who come and pack the backpacks on Wednesdays and those who deliver them also to the individual schools on Thursdays. Through their dedication we can ensure that many kids do not go hungry over the weekend. <3

We often get asked if we take fresh produce, we do.
We get asked if we can take produce from their gardens, we can.
We get asked if we can accept cleaning products, we can as long as it doesn’t contain bleach.

Though I have always sent out a monthly newsletter and try to post a “Top 10 List” of items the cupboard needs, I feel redundant to continue stressing the needs of ICC but here we are. The Top 10 list for June will include a few more items beyond the 10. We strongly need the following items to support our residents:

Thank you all so much for your continued support! Enjoy our summer weather.
