Our Church collects food donations in the green wheelbarrow in the Copeland room. Your generous donations are delivered monthly to the Christian Community Action food pantry. CCA’s clients select the items they need and want for families ranging from one to two to seven or eight.
Use the Shopping List as a guide for your food donations. Check the specials aisle for similar items on sale. A variety of sizes are appropriate.
Please donate only packaged or canned goods. The CT health department prohibits distribution of fresh foods.
Census data for 2008 show Connecticut had the largest percentage increase for all people and for children living in poverty in the country – despite our goal of cutting the child poverty rate in half by 2014. That’s almost 315,000 Connecticut residents living under the Federal poverty law.
