Copperopolis Community Food Pantry would like to thank the Calaveras Community Foundation for a $1000 financial contribution to their food Supply for senior residents. This unexpected "surprise grant" was due to a generous donation from the Federlein Family Fund
of the San Francisco Community Foundation, as part of the"Seniors Aging in Place Initiative". This funding has allowed the Copperopolis pantry to purchase thirty pounds of ground beef, giving each of the twenty-five seniors an additional pound of hamburger to supplement meals, and still Have five pounds (frozen) left over to give out in January. The grant was received on "pantry day" (the third week of December) and there was no Time to shop for additional items, so it was decided that the balance of the senior's grant $920.15 would be spent in January.
