New Kindergarten Families Meet and Greet
The Friends of Families Kindergarten Meet and Greet takes place on Saturday, August 18, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on the Hinesburg Community School playground, rain or shine - there is a pavilion we can use for activities in case of rain. Families can enjoy some playtime, watermelon and craft activities. This fun annual event is a great way to meet others in the same class and make some connections before school starts.
Food Shelf Volunteers Needed
Have a little time on Friday mornings? We're looking for some friendly volunteers to work a Friday Food Shelf shift from 10:00 am-noon - once or twice a month or more as you're able. If you are interested in learning more, please reach out to Food Shelf Co-Director, Jeff Glover, at 872-8685 or email@example.com.
Double Your 3SquaresVT Benefits at Farmer's Markets
Did you know you can use your EBT 3SquaresVT/SNAP card at many farmer's markets? Even better, the Crop Cash program gives you up to $10 extra per trip to spend on fruits and veggies. It's easy to started - just visit the information tent at your chosen farmer's market. If you would like to learn more about doubling your benefit and which markets participate, visit the Crop Cash Program.
Friends of Families playgroups will be back in full swing in September, and we can't wait to see everyone! Baby playgroup will be on Mondays this year from 9-10:30 (starting 9/17; no playgroup on second Mondays of the month). We will still have our regular Wednesday playgroup and Friday preschool playgroup (starting the week of 9/3). In the meantime, families with kids ages 0-5 are meeting informally at the Hinesburg Nursery School playground (10856 Route 116), on Thursdays in July and Wednesdays in August, at 10:00.
