Stratford, Connecticut (August 31st, 2017) –Due to its success in July and August, the Connecticut Food Bank Mobile Pantry program will offer an additional distribution date for Stratford residents in September. The Mobile Pantry program addresses the need to decrease food insecurity by minimizing major barriers such as transportation and cost associated with purchasing fresh food.

 

On Tuesday, September 12th, the mobile food pantry will be located at Holy Name of Jesus Church (1950 Barnum Avenue) from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. to distribute a variety of free fresh and nutritious food to both individuals and families. The mobile pantry will include items such as dairy, vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and other perishable items.

 

“The Connecticut Food Bank and Holy Name of Jesus Church have been instrumental in making this program successful,” says Andrea Boissevain, the Director of Health for the Stratford Health Department, “we are very thankful for the opportunity to continue offering fresh food to our residents.”

 

If you have any questions regarding the mobile pantry delivery please call Fred Goodman at (203) 469-5000.
