Thank you Kirk Casey American Legion Post 366 for your Feed the Future food drive donations. Providing breakfast food for children is an important element in battling food insecurity in our neighborhoods. “Feed the Future” is one of two annual food drives by Post 366, with this drive focusing on breakfast foods and is held purposely just before school gets out for those kids that won’t be getting breakfast at school. Post 366’s continued support and the generosity of all who donated to the food drive is very much appreciated. Thank you!
During Thanksgiving week two generous donations came in from the Seneca Falls School District who recently held food drives to donate to our food pantry for local families in need.
The Seneca Falls Middle School held a can-drive the month before Thanksgiving on what they called Thankful Tuesdays. Each Tuesday had a different theme (Hat Day, PJ Day, build your own Sundae and a Movie Night) and in order to participate, students were encouraged to bring in a canned good to donate. 344 food items were dropped off at the food pantry Thanksgiving week.
Mynderse Academy (high school) held a separate can drive a week before Thanksgiving. Students were encouraged to bring in canned goods in a friendly competition between homerooms. On the Monday before Thanksgiving, members of the Student Council gathered all of the items (nearly 1000) for the food pantry.
Thank you to the students, faculty, parents and all who donated for your commitment in giving to others in our community.
Thank you to Seneca Falls Cub Scouts – Pack 88 for your continued support with organizing the “Scouting for Food” food drive and to everyone in the community that donated food. Your generosity and hard work is greatly appreciated during this holiday season. These donations will make a positive impact on the community we serve.

On behalf of our clients and everyone at the Seneca County House of Concern thank you for your continued commitment and support for our organization and thank you to the employees for their generous donations.
The Seneca Falls Kirk Casey American Legion Post 366 recently donated food items collected during the 5th Annual Feed the Future Project. The food drive collected breakfast foods to help feed children over the summer because for many, once the school year is over, there is no breakfast to start their day.
In addition to the items in the picture, more donations of cereal came in and the timing could not have been better because the pantry was in great need of cereal.
A big thank you to the Kirk Casey American Legion Post 366 and friends for their donations!
The Kirk Casey American Legion Post 366 (Seneca Falls) is holding their 5th Annual Feed the Future Project. With the school year ending soon, for some children this will mean going without breakfast. The Legion is asking for non-perishable breakfast foods such as cereal, juice, oatmeal, grits, pop tarts, peanut butter, etc.
Every food item donation will entitle you to one entry to win a gift certificate from a local establishment.
Wadhams Enterprises held a holiday food drive at their business in December and donated the collection to our food pantry.
On behalf of our clients and everyone at the Seneca County House of Concern thank you to everyone at Wadhams Enterprises for your generous donation. It is businesses like yours that make it possible for us to continue our mission of helping our neighbors in need.
