Honors For Lake Township FISH
On November 3, 2016 Lake Township FISH Food Pantry received a letter from the Akron Canton
Regional Food Bank stating that we have been determined to be in “full compliance” with
the Partnership and Liability Agreement as well as the USDA Ohio Commodities Agreement.
Our Partnership Field Advisor, Linda Steinhebel wrote: “Lake Township FISH Food Pantry
continues to excel in all food related standards and procedures as set forth by the State of Ohio
as well as the Federal Government as it relates to the distribution of food to our fellow community
members in need.”
This letter reflects the hard work of the volunteers, the Advisory Council, and the Director.
There are many components of FISH and as a food distribution facility, it is evaluated in many
ways by ACFB. To be rated in “full compliance” and “to excel in all food related standards “ is
quite an achievement!
Food for Thought for the New Year
In spite of the fact we complain and lament
And view this old world with much discontent,
Deploring its conditions and grumbling because
There’s so much injustice and so many flaws.
But it is a wonderful world because of people like you
Who make it that way, by the things that they do.
For a warm, ready smile or a kind, thoughtful deed
Or a hand outstretched in an hour of need
Can change our whole outlook and make the world bright,
Where a minute before just nothing seemed right.
It’s a wonderful world and it always will be
If we keep our eyes open and focused to see
The wonderful things man is capable of
When he opens his heart to God and His love.
