Feeding Our Families

(Posted April 29, 2018)

NBC Connecticut, Telemundo Connecticut, Stop & Shop and food pantries across the state have teamed up for "Feeding Our Families," a food drive to help end hunger.

Members of our Youth Group were on hand at all Stop & Shop in New Fairfield, and collected non-perishable items for the Hillside Food Outreach, a pantry that feeds over 2,000 hungry people in Westchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties. 

Food banks face periods of greatest need between January and August — a time outside of traditional periods of giving and volunteering to coincide with the holiday season. Non-perishable items are requested by families daily, but the most frequently-requested items are those not covered by public assistance programs. These requests range from baby diapers to personal hygiene items such as toilet paper, feminine products and more.
