VIA THE RECORDER
By: Anita Fritz
GREENFIELD — The city’s mayor stood on the upper end of Hope Street Saturday morning, ready to hand out peanut butter, fresh produce, meat, dairy and more to those who were there for some help.
Nearby in the basement of All Souls Church, volunteers were filling to-go containers with salad, vegan potato dill soup or corned beef and cabbage stew, a western tofu scramble for vegans or a turkey sausage dish with goat cheese, both with mixed vegetables, and some pear crisp.
“I used to volunteer at least two Saturdays a month, setting up tables and/or serving,” Mayor Roxann Wedegartner said. “I got so busy with the campaign and then becoming mayor — with a pandemic hitting shortly after — that I couldn’t do it.”
