Help make re-usable bags for Food Shelf Distribution

As the Interfaith Food Shelf uses only boxes, paper bags and re-useable bags to distribute items to their clients, there is a need to help supply these items to the Food Shelf.

A group gathers on Monday mornings from 10:00 a.m. – noon at the Food Shelf (Plattsburgh United Methodist Church, 127 Beekman St.) each week to sew bags from donated materials.  One does not need to “sew” to help.  Tasks include cutting, pinning, sewing and pressing.  The group welcomes new helpers and ideas for the project.  Contact information Margaret Tallman, 518-563-3979 or
