Family food budgets are often the first to be cut, reducing both the amount of quality of food in many households and putting people in situations of food insecurity and hunger. In 2018, we opened the pantry an additional day to accommodate the growing need. We also increased a families shopping frequency to once a week to increase their ability to become economically stable.

Because no one should go hungry

There’s still a lot of work to be done, and God is looking for people who will step out, take a bold stand and do the work God has called them to do! Bishop Jean Williams

We recognize that food security

is a key piece of the puzzle in achieving economic mobility.  We are grateful for all of the donations that are obtained through the Connecticut Food Bank, farms and local stores.

Breaking the cycle of poverty by providing services that help families become economically stable.
