Shelters, pantries benefit from Market Basket donations
“All the (bread) stuff that was past date we gave to a number of pig farms, people who had livestock,” Tilton store director Mike LeClair said Thursday.
Some milk orders were already in the pipeline, and boycotting customers have resulted in a 94 percent dropoff of cash register receipts at the Tilton store, LeClair said.
“I’ve been a milk pusher today,” she said. “A lot of people donate cereal and we never have milk to go with it.”
“I can probably distribute over 225 gallons of milk (Friday),” said Dale, who was unsure how much would be available. She hopes to help out about a half-dozen organizations.
“We’re already giving it out,” said Capt. Sally Warren of the Salvation Army food pantry in Concord.
Dale said she alerted the Salvation Army workers in Laconia and they also picked up milk.
“They were gone in about five days,” she said.
Dale appreciates the food.
“They know we need it,” Dale said, adding store employees don’t “want to waste all this milk.”
