Jean Vermeire, third from left, and Rosalie Helbig, second from left, received $2,000 and $1,200, respectively, as the first- and second-prize winners in the Bread for Life community food pantry’s 50/50 raffle. The prizes were presented by the Gloucester-based food pantry’s executive director/manager Bob Quinzel, at right, with volunteers Joan and Tony Gattuso looking on. The third-prize winner of $800 was Martha Alami of Annandale. The raffle will support the purchase of a walk-in freezer for the pantry, which is seeing a growing demand. Quinzel said the pantry served 187 families last week compared to 66 families during the same week last year. Photo by Kim Robins.
