The Stratford Health Department has partnered with Connecticut Food Bank to host a site for the food bank’s mobile food pantry program pantry once a month in July and August. The Connecticut Food Bank 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, July 11 and Tuesday, Aug. 8, the mobile food pantry will be located at the Holy Name of Jesus Church, 1950 Barnum Ave., from 3:30 to 4:30 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.
“We are very thankful for our partnership with the Connecticut Food Bank to increase access to fresh and nutritious food to our residents during the summer months,” said Andrea Boissevain, Director of Health for the Stratford Health Department in a news release.
