The Medfield Food Cupboard depends on the generosity of individuals and groups in Medfield and neighboring communities to feed the families who depend on its service, and this year was no exception.  However, this year, in addition to the generous outpouring of support from the community, Shaws Supermarket in Medfield supplied 42 Thanksgiving dinners to the clients at the Food Cupboard.

“The clients were thrilled with the meals that Shaws provided,” said Beth Eby, President of the Food Cupboard.  “They provided each family a dinner that included a Butterball turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, squash, cranberry sauce, rolls, and a pie. All of the foods were fully cooked.  It was a wonderful feeling to see so many families happy with their meals.

“Shaws, local businesses, community organization, and the residents of Medfield, have always been tremendous supporters of the Medfield Food Cupboard,” continued Eby, “and because of them we are able to help feed families who are in need of supplemental or emergency food. “

The officers and volunteers of the organization say they are thankful for all the help they receive from the community year round and especially during holiday time. This Christmas, they will work with the Medfield Lions Club to give out Christmas trees to Medfield Food Cupboard clients who request one. 

“Due to the community's generosity, many people will have a very happy holiday season,” said Eby. “We are so blessed to live in such a wonderful, giving town.”

To meet the needs of their clients, food distributions are held approximately every 2 weeks at the Food Cupboard home: the United Church of Christ, 496 Main Street, Medfield.  Residents in need the services of the Food Cupboard, may call 508-359-4958 and leave a message.

Donations of non-perishable, unopened, unexpired food items may be dropped off in the narthex of the United Church of Christ, most Medfield churches, or in the bins at the exits of Shaw’s Supermarket in Medfield.
