Children living in any of the 18 communities in our service area who receive free or subsidized meals through their school are eligible to receive this food. - Every eligible child receives groceries including grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy and protein. Families pick up food for the Kids’ Summer Food Program during our usual pantry hours at the same time that they are getting their regular package of groceries. Both our Northampton and Goshen locations distribute Kids’ Summer Food Program packages. - Fresh Dairy Program - Beginning in March 2013, a popular Fresh Dairy Program replaced powdered milk with fresh milk from Our Family Farms, a local dairy cooperative. For this effort we’ve secured 3-year funding from an anonymous family foundation, and have brokered an excellent deal with the local dairy farmers who are grateful for steady stream of income from this order of hundreds of half-gallons each week. Clients are thrilled because they all prefer fresh milk to powdered, and we know it supports area children in choosing to eat a nutritious breakfast of whole grain cereal and milk, rather than an easy-to-grab sugary alternative. - Thanksgiving - During the month of November, the Northampton Survival Center distributes additional traditional Thanksgiving items such as potatoes, cranberry and squash to each client family when they come in for their regular package of groceries. - Birthdays - Depending on availability, clients can pick up a cake or cake mix for their birthday when they pick up their regular package of groceries. - Cloth Bags - The City of Northampton Single Use Plastic Bag Ban went into effect on January 1, 2016.
