Kitchen Cravings to celebrate its 5th birthday by giving to food pantry

GILFORD — Kitchen Cravings, which was opened five years ago Bill and Sally Bickford who had a vision of turning a vacant Gilford bank building into an upscale, world class breakfast and lunch eatery is planning a fund raising event to benefit the St. Vincent  DePaul food pantry on Tuesday, September 3./

They will donate $5 for every person who comes in for breakfast and lunch that day to the food pantry, a place where each year on their birthdays they give a gift in dollars equal to their age.

The Bickfords say that they have been fortunate to have so many loyal customers and try to use the healthiest foods they can find and buy local when available, along with biodegradable and made in the USA products.

The Bickfords hope to raise $1,000 for the food pantry next Tuesday.

''We feel that giving back to the earth and the community is the only true way to be part of your town.'' says Sally Bickford.
