Jay Area Food Shelf News
The Jay Focus Group is proud to announce our new alliance with the Jay Area Food Shelf serving the towns of Jay, Lowell, North Troy, Troy & Westfield. Many thanks to the First Congregational Church of North Troy for their many years of service as the 501(c) 3 for the Jay Area Food Shelf. In order for the VT Food Bank to sell and transport to the Jay Area Food Shelf. They REQUIRE the food shelf to align with a 501(c) 3. In order to keep our donation funds used exclusively for the Jay Area.

Over the years we have happily raised funds, and supported food & clothing drives for the Jay Area Food Shelf and we are happy to continue to support Kim Lucier, Director of the food shelf, going forward. The Food Shelf depends on donations and appropriations. A very special thanks to everyone who donated time, food and money to the food shelf. With the continued support & generosity from area community members, the food shelf can continue to serve many people in the area when they need a little help.
For information, whether you qualify for the food shelf program, or the USDA Commodities, please visit the food shelf site in the Jay Municipal Building, on Thursday during operation hours of 9 am to noon or email kim.lucier1961@gmail.com.
