Crossroads Food Pantry is one of the most impactful outreach programs of the West Suffield Congregational Church. For over 10 years the pantry has been open on the second Thursday of every month, offering canned goods, vegetables from our local farmers, frozen meat items and more from our partners at Foodshare. In addition, we also serve as a townwide site for Foodshare’s Mobile Pantry truck that arrives every other week and distributes fresh fruit and vegetables in our parking lot to an average of 150 people per month in need of food assistance. Over the last six months, due to supply chain issues, it has become increasingly difficult for Foodshare to find nutritious food to offer for distribution. What this means for us is that to open each month we have had to supplement our pantry with items that we must purchase.
The holidays are approaching, home heating costs and the price of groceries have soared. It is becoming increasingly difficult for us to meet our community’s needs. Please open your hearts and donate to Crossroads Food Pantry so we may continue to provide basic food items to our neighbors in need.
