The members of the Lakeville chapter of the Older Women's League, OWL, continue to operate the food bank that they founded over seventeen years ago to assist those in need. The Owl's Kitchen distributes food from a house behind St. Mary's church. The OWL's are a national organization, whose purpose, according to their Web site, is to improve the status and quality of life for midlife and older women, through education and advocacy. Most clients are referrals from Salisbury Family Services, where those seeking assistance are screened for appropriate programs.
An average of 50 people receive food each week, for themselves and family members. The Kitchen is open Friday evenings and Saturday mornings, and clients are allowed to pick from a variety of packaged foods as well as fresh vegetables.
We shop each week. The group is supported with funds and food donations by Lakeville residents, churches, businesses, and local schools, both public and private. For purchases, the OWL's shop locally, purchasing food in bulk with the assistance of LaBonne's Market, and area farms. Current economic conditions have produced a steady demand for the food that the OWL's provide. Henry Moore can be contacted by at hmoore registercitizen.Lakeville older women
