Our Woodstock store’s hunger relief partner is Urban Gleaners. Founded in 2006, Urban Gleaners’ mission is to help alleviate hunger by rescuing edible surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away—and delivering it to agencies that feed the hungry. The concept of picking up and redistributing food is a simple weapon in the fight against hunger.
There’s a running joke that Peggy McCafferty knows everyone by name at the Woodstock store. As the Community Coordinator, she’s helping out local schools and non-profits when they need a little extra assistance with fundraising and events. Famous for her sour cream coffee cake and Guinness chocolate cupcakes, she’s also been the Volunteer Coordinator for the Woodstock Farmers Market since 2011! Keep your eyes peeled around Halloween and you might just see Peggy wearing her giant tomato costume, which she says often gets mistaken for a strawberry.
