Upcoming Annual Meeting
September 14, 4:30-7pm at the Senior Center, 163 W. Main Street, Groton
(4:30-5pm business meeting)

We are planning our Summer Soup Night for September 14 in conjunction with our annual meeting and we hope you’ll be able to attend.  Soup Night will be held at The Groton Senior Center at 163 W. Main Street, from 4:30pm to 7pm.  The theme of the evening, after the business meeting is finished (at 5pm), is to bring everyone up-to-date on the pilot of our Groton Neighborhood Food Project and to share our plans for the spring, 2015 official kick-off.

Patricia Stern, executive director of Loaves and Fishes, who will be our special guest will give us a real insider’s look at how the organization works and what the Food Project means to that operation.
 
Soup Night will be a potluck affair and we hope to have some attendees offer to cook up some soup to share; while others add bread or drinks to the table. Bring along your own bowl, spoon and napkin, too.

It’s important that you RSVP so that we can plan the menu.  Please email if you plan to come and indicate if you plan to bring a food contribution.  Email Bobby at

Groton Neighborhood Food Project
Groton Local has just embarked on an exciting project called the Groton Neighborhood Food Project. The project involves providing a steady source of food for families in need. The idea for this project is based upon the Ashland (Oregon) Food Project model (http://ashlandfoodproject.com/). Local food pantries are always in need of food for their shelves and Groton Local would like to try and create a stable and steady flow of donations.
 
We anticipate much discussion about the
Groton Neighborhood Food Project as we prepare for our upcoming pilot launching this August. The full program will launch in Spring 2015. If you are interested in any aspect of this project please contact Groton Local here.
