Teton Valley Food Pantry (TVFP) Coordinator Sharon Froberg announced that she will be retiring from her position at the end of February.
“TVFP will always be grateful to Sharon for her dedication and service to the Food Pantry,” said TVFP Board President Deb Adams. “Since becoming the first employee of the Food Pantry in 2010, Sharon has coordinated countless volunteer groups, events, grants and donations in an effort to ensure those in need of food in our beautiful valley have a place to receive it.”
In her 10 years at the Food Pantry, Sharon dedicated her time to ensuring a safe and caring environment for clients. The biggest change in her tenure was the move to the Trailhead Building on Hwy. 33. The larger site allowed the Food Pantry to better serve clients with easier access.
“This is an extraordinary community that has always given the best of itself to support the people in need whom we serve,” said Froberg. “The process is circular and I receive as much benefit back as i seek to put out to those I serve.”
The TVFP Board invites the community to celebrate Sharon’s service to the Food Pantry on Friday, March 6 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm at the site.
About the Teton Valley Food Pantry
The Teton Valley Food Pantry provides emergency food assistance to residents of Teton Valley (including Teton County, Idaho and Alta, Wyoming). Our goal is to end hunger in our valley. We want every person who lives with food insecurity to have healthy food available. We partner with organizations, clubs, churches, businesses and individuals to collect and distribute food to those in need.
The holiday season is a time to spend time with your close friends and family to share the love you have for one another. You are able to sit around the dinner table with your family members and enjoy a meal.
But every year on Thanksgiving, part of our Teton Valley community does not have the ability to be able to share food with their family members. The Teton Valley Food Pantry is committed to helping members of our community have the same opportunity to share a traditional Thanksgiving meal with those they love.
You can help a neighbor in need put a meal on the table this Thanksgiving and Holiday season. Your donation will allow us to feed the children, adults and seniors who come to the Food Pantry every week and want to sit down to eat with their families over the holidays.
Teton Valley Food Pantry is a largely volunteer-driven organization. That means your donation has a big impact on feeding people in their time of greatest need. The Holiday season is the time when the Food Pantry has more visitors than any other time of year.
We ask you to please consider a Thanksgiving or Holiday donation to support your neighbors in need this season. You may donate by mail or through our website www.tvfoodpantry.com.
Thank you for your consideration,
Deb Adams, President
Elaine Moehring, Vice President
Lisa Wagener, Treasurer
Monica Hoth, Secretary
