WILTON – On Feb. 26, members of the Saratoga-Wilton Elks Senior Outreach Program, developed and chaired by Ben Buffa, presented a $1,500 check to the Wilton Food Pantry. The funds came from the Elks National Foundation Anniversary Grant. 

Members of the Senior Outreach Program have worked with the Wilton Food Pantry for several months and are now in full implementation of servicing about 40 seniors in three locations. The extra funds will be used to purchase additional items from the Regional Food Bank at a more discounted rate.

On June 7 and 8 Buffa will lead a presentation before the New York State Association of Resident Service Coordinators to explain and expand this program.
