Here’s the Scoop about Fentons and the Food Bank

Guest post by Ambassador Houston Robertson: I like second chances. Don’t you? I’m also fond of second scoops of ice cream. So, it’s hip hip hurrah for Fentons Creamery in Vacaville because they’ve chosen to benefit the Food Bank for a second month. In February, the Food Bank will receive 25% of the sales of Nuts About Toffee. This special sundae is listed on the menu as Myrtles Monthly Creation. If you didn’t get to Fentons in January for those generous scoops of the special Fluffernutter sundae, make sure you take advantage of this second chance to treat yourself, friends, and family and benefit the Food Bank at the same time. How about a Valentine date at Fentons? Spread the word.

 What a great community partner Fentons is! They will continue to have a Food Bank barrel for food donations in their lobby and I encourage you to come prepared to donate something. They also have a bucket for cash donations. Food Bank ambassadors will be tabling at Fentons on Saturdays from 11am – 3pm. I tabled there one Saturday in January. Fentons not only provides the table and chairs, they provide an exceptionally warm welcome to Food Bank ambassadors. Manager Keith Ortega saw us as “that special spark in getting the guests’ support”. His comprehensive view of our partnership is “a push to raise awareness and money for the Food Bank”.
