To the Editor:

The Community Food Cupboard and the Town of Manchester are pleased to report that they have come to terms on a lease that runs through December 31, 2018.

The updated lease, recently approved by the Manchester Select Board and CFC's board of directors, reflects the interests of the residents of Manchester as well as enables the Food Cupboard to remain in Town Hall for at least three more years to continue its critical mission of providing nutritious food to families in need in our community. The approval of the lease is particularly well timed with the coming of the cold winter months, Thanksgiving and the Holiday season.

Ivan C. Beattie, Chair of the Manchester Selectboard
