Second Stage Amherst has received a $20,000 donation from Centra Foundation in support of ongoing community programs.

The funding from Centra Foundation supports the Second Helping, a program enabling Second Stage to purchase surplus food from the vendors at the weekly farm market and distribute it to food insecure residents in partnership with Blue Ledge Meals on Wheels and New Prospect Baptist Church Food Bank.

Kathleen Doss Lloyd of the New Prospect Church Food Bank said the donation helps provide fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, and meats, as well as fresh baked items.
