Who We Help
One in seven families in Connecticut can't afford sufficient groceries. Hunger is a real problem even in little towns like ours. We don't want to see anyone miss a meal, so with your help we have a food program that helps to provide food to those who are struggling through difficult times. We are presently helping 60-90 families providing groceries for between 3,600-5,400 meals every month. We generally provide a large box of food filled with non-perishables, frozen meat, bread and produce. If you are low income or in need of food, you can contact the church for food assistance. Food distribution is usually the 4th Friday of the month from 7:00-9:00am, but please call or check our website www.AshfordChurch.org for schedule and eligibility forms.
We are focused on helping Ashford families but also provide assistance to families in Eastford, Chaplin and Willington. If you live outside those towns please contact the 211 info line for a food pantry that can help you.
We help as many eligible people as we can and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
Although we purchase most of our food through Foodshare we always need the community's help with donations of non-perishable food. When you see a great sale in the grocery store, remember those in need. You can drop off food donations at the church any time in the container at the east entry of our rear building. Your financial donation is also critically important to help us continue to meet this great need.
