"MR. FOODBANK"

The Lacey Food Bank lost a friend and comrade on June 2nd, when Emil Ciangetti, former Chairman, and one of the original founders of the food bank, died as a result of an automobile accident.

Emil, 81, was a loving father to his grandson Steve, who he adopted as a young boy. He was involved in the food bank until his death, and belonged to many civic organizatons as well as being active in the Village Lutheran Church in Lanoka Harbor. He is honored for his many good deeds performed within his family and his community.

Rest in Peace Friend

Ralph Lanuto, shown here with his wife Edna, was a pioneer in the foodbank, back when Emil, Ziggie and he were the only ones manning the "fort'. An active civic minded man, he served as our liaison to clubs and organizations. We miss his hearty laugh and helping hands.

Meet  "Big Blue Crew" member, Jack Mountsier. He and his  fellow blue crew are responsible for collecting the food from the BIG BLUE cans in ShopRite on a daily basis as well as moving it back and forth, to and fro, from Community Hall . You'll also find Jack "packin' and sackin' " on Monday mornings at the food bank.

kenmeretta.jpg

Packin' and sackin' are Ken & Meretta Baxter who also help out on Thursdays and Fridays of distribution, in fact, help out pretty much wherever they are asked to help out!

irenee.jpg

Meet Irene Ehrenfeld, new volunteer, who came to check us out, and ended up packin' and sackin'.  Would be volunteers take note, service with the food bank is not a glamorous thing, the pay is lousy (okay non existant) but the rewards are great and your coworkers the kind of people you like to hang out with.
