Stretching your grocery dollars

Food Bank of CNY’s Food $en$e program offers grocery packages for $15.50

Linda Davis and her husband don’t get out much. “If Phoenix and Baldwinsville fell off the map, I’d be gone,” Davis said. “I really don’t leave the area.” The couple is also on a fixed income. That’s why, for the last 20 years, they’ve taken advantage of the Food Bank of Central New York’s Food $en$e program, a monthly food distribution program for individuals and families who want help stretching their monthly food budget, like the Davises. Once a month, people who want to participate sign up at the host site near their home, pre-paying $15.50 in cash or food stamps for the food package. Later in the month, when the food package is ready to be picked up, the customers return to the same site for their delivery.
