BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The food shelf in Burlington is urging community members to make donations of food and money as it tries to meet the demands for the upcoming holiday.

The Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf says it served a total of 800 people Thursday - for meals, groceries and turkeys - the highest number it has served in one day.

The food shelf says its supplies to provide 3,000 food-insecure families with Thanksgiving meals are critically low.

Monetary donations can be made online at feedingchittenden.org or dropped off at 228 North Winooski Avenue. The food shelf is also seeking turkey fixings of mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn and green beans.

It will be open on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
