Life in Newtown, CT: Food Donations to Local Food Pantries

Food Donations to Local Food Pantries

Food Donations to Local Food Pantries  It's been a while since we've posted a blog.  Business has been good and the holiday season has kept us busy.  We do have a recent event that we feel is blog-worthy.

On Tuesday, December 26, 2011, Bob received a phone call from the Big Y, a local supermarket here in Newtown.  In the past, we have blogged about the F.A.I.T.H. Food Pantry and Newtown's Victory Garden, which provides fresh grown produce to the food pantries.  With the help of Google, the Big Y found us!

Seems that they had some left over bakery goods to donate to the local food pantries.  The F.A.I.T.H. Food Pantry is closed this week and Newtown Social Services was closed on the 26th.  After learning what the Big Y had to donate, Bob told them to "bring it all to our office" and boy, did they did!  This is what we found when got to the office:

We made some phone calls, rounded up the troops (our friends, Paul and Cris Fadus) and distributed the food on Tuesday, 12/27, to Newtown Social Services and Dorothy Day in Danbury.

A big thanks goes out to The Big Y!!  All the local food pantries are in need of food.  They need it all year long - not just during the holiday season.  Please feel free to drop off your donations to our office at 84A South Main Street, Newtown.  We'll make sure that your donations get to those who are in need.

Now, don't you think Food Donations to Local Food Pantries was blog-worthy??
