SHARE FOOD Menu for May 2014 Released

May 2014 Share Food Network Menu

The SHARE Food Menu for May 2014 has been released. The Jefferson (VA) Ruritan Club uses the SHARE Food Network to help feed their sponsored needy families. Some club members use SHARE Food for their own families as well.

This is a great way to save money on food – and you do not have to disclose income. You do not need to be receiving food stamps. The food is top-quality. If you are not taking advantage of this opportunity to get good food for little money, it is a crying shame!

The “Order Turn-in date” is the date that the organizers have to turn their orders in to the warehouse, so place YOUR order by the day before. The pick-up dates on the flyer indicate Friday as an option, but it is NOT an option here in the area – the pick-up date is Saturday only.

Note: In Virginia locations only: prices do NOT include a $1 surcharge to offset the price of gasoline for the volunteer drivers who use their personal vehicles to drive to the warehouse to pick up the shipment to bring to the local host sites.

When you place your order, please check with the coordinator for the appropriate pick-up time for the location you will be using.

There are three local distribution locations near the Jefferson (VA) Ruritan Club where area residents can pick up their food orders:

Hunters For the Hungry 2014 Certificate of Appreciation Award To Be Given to the Jefferson VA Ruritan Club

Hunters for the Hungry certificate 2013

Hunters for the Hungry passed out certificates of appreciation to local Ruritan Clubs on January 29, 2014 at the Ruritan Rapidan District‘s Annual Presidents and Secretaries meeting and dinner held at the East Orange Ruritan Club’s building in Unionville, VA. Ruritan National Director Sarah Kelly passed out the awards, as a token of appreciation to the local Ruritan Clubs that had donated money to their charity.

The Jefferson VA Ruritan Club’s President and Secretary were absent from the meeting, so the award was given to the District’s Lt. Governor, Linda Bradshaw for safekeeping, with the understanding that the certificate will be delivered to the club in the near future.

Final Turkey Shoot of the season held January 10

The Jefferson Ruritans held the final Turkey Shoot of the season despite cold, rain, and mud on January 10, 2014 at the Jeffersonton Community Center. A large turnout of competitors made the last Turkey Shoot one of the most profitable Turkey Shoots for the Ruritan club this season, selling 199 targets. The concession stand sold out of food, and the competition was called off early due to muddy conditions on the shooting range.

The second, and last raffle prize, a Rossi .410 youth shotgun, provided by Cedar Mountain Armory of Culpeper, was awarded at the end of the competition.
