Food Drive for Comfort Food Community
When: March 1 - 31, 2024
Co-op Teaming Up with Comfort Food Community
During the month of March, the Cambridge Food Co-op will do a food drive to benefit Comfort Food Community, the food pantry that has two pantry locations in Greenwich and Cossayuna and helps supply other local pantries in Washington, Saratoga, and Warren counties.
CFC is looking for specific food items (canned tuna, pasta, pasta sauce, and canned soups), and the Co-op will have a display set up of these items at a discounted price, which you can buy in the store and place in the donation box. Other donations will be accepted as well.

Several classes about food are hosted by Co-op members Bliss McIntosh and Helen McIntosh. If you attend one of their courses, you'll receive a coupon to the Co-op, which you can use to buy the items recommended in their classes.
Mud U -
Classes for the Community,
By the Community
February 18 - March 11, 2024
Mud U of Cambridge, New York, was created by Connie Brooks, proprietor of Battenkill Books. She was inspired by a Vermont town’s desire to take the seemingly bleakest weeks of winter (the ones we fondly call “Mud Season”) and make them into a time of community, learning, and sharing.
Who teaches the classes?
The classes are taught by anyone in the community who has something to share! You don’t have to have a scholarly background to teach for Mud U.
Who takes part in the courses?
Anyone who wants to learn a new skill, learn about a new topic, or take part in a community conversation.
What’s the cost?
Mud U offers free classes BY the community FOR the community. There is no cost—just the priceless opportunity for us all to learn from each other!
