EMILY ALBAUGH KIRP-C: The Town is trying for a COVID grant for a food pantry. The amount of the grant is for $250,000.00. The grant writer will then be paid 16,250.00 out of the grant. The total to be awarded would be $243,750.00. This is not a matching grant.

 

There is survey to fill out to see how great the need is in Wolcott.

 

We may also be looking into seeing if the Town would qualify as a ?HUD? Town. If we do then that would mean more Government money, for assistance, running through our town

 

The town had to find a place to disperse the food. Wolcott Christian Church has graciously agreed to let us use their fellowship hall. Sandy Miller will be the director of the food pantry. Sandy will go through her contacts and purchase the food for the town. Then the grant will reimburse the town.

 

This is income based like the food truck.

 

Emily Albaugh KIRP-C: How will this be sustained once the year is up. Sandy Miller RWCDC answered with Food Drives, Donations and possibly another grant.

 

Another question that was asked. How is the Food Pantry going to be advertised? Sandy Miller and Pam Bennett answered that it would be advertised through sending fliers out to the schools, post office, and various businesses in the area. It would also be advertised through social media and word of mouth. It will also be a reminder put on the water bills.

 

When asked approximately how many family?s we thought would come through the Food Pantry, we estimated 100-125. 

Our deadline to get all the information that Emily asked for is Feb 28, 2021. Emily?s deadline to submit the Grant is March 18,2021. Grant will be awarded In April 2021.

 

Adjourned.
