On Wednesday and Thursday pantry clients will be asked to register at the front door of the building and will then be directed to the back door where they will pick up their food. Pre-packed bags of non-perishable food items, bread, meat and some produce will be distributed.
People wishing to register will be given a registration form and will be asked to bring proof of residency, income and date of birth for household members the following week by appointment.
This change has been put in place to safeguard staff, volunteers and clients alike. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation at this very difficult time.
The Community Kitchen Welcomes You.
Gleaning For The Community Kitchen
Over the years, over twenty commercial farms in the county have donated produce either after it has been harvested or directly from the field, greenhouse, or orchard, where crews of volunteers gather to harvest crops that range from baby salad greens to sweet corn to apples. Gleaners also collect products at the end of farmer’s market days, while home gardeners and community gardeners donate their garden extras or their crops that were grown specifically to feed their neighbors in need. In all, the community has donated over 250,000 pounds of fresh local produce to support Cheshire County residents facing food insecurity in the course of eight seasons.
