To the Editor:

We at New Milford Social Services would like to thank all those who supported and participated in the 2010 "Walk a Mile for a Meal" food bank benefit event.

It was a great success with all age groups represented.

In addition to the many individuals who participated or made donations, we would like to especially thank the area churches, Canterbury School, Rumsey Hall School and Girl Scout Troops 40205, 40253 and 40464 for their enthusiasm and determination to make this event a success.

The Social Services food bank has approximately 400 registered individuals and families, with 150 utilizing this program weekly.

Though this event greatly helped fill our pantry shelves, the need is ongoing. We look forward to the continued support of the community in our efforts to fight hunger.
