Submitted Photo/Bud Penner

(Town of Sullivan, NY – May 2012) Sullivan Food Cupboard volunteer Joe Barilla is pictured sorting food collected by postal carriers from the Chittenango Post Office Saturday, May 5.

Patrons on the carrier route placed food parcels by their mail boxes for pick-up and delivery to the cupboard. A portion of the collection is pictured with Joe sorting and shelving the donations.

Assisting Joe were volunteers Bob Lake, Jeff Collier, Bob Semian, Melinda “Mickey” Kopp and Caroline Beglen. The drive is a yearly event resulting in a large variety of food donated to the cupboard. The Post Office, area Scouts, members of the Greater Chittenango Area Association of Churches, Chittenango Central School and many individual and local organizations provide needed support, enabling the cupboard to serve about 300 families visiting the cupboard each month. Sullivan Food Cupboard is grateful to the residents of Postal Code Area 13037 and the letter carriers of the Chittenango Post Office.
