On April 28, Foodshare teamed up with Stop & Shop and NBC Connecticut to help feed families in need across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
The Southington event collected 3,298 pounds of food, along with $800 to benefit Bread for Life.
Twenty-six BFL volunteers gave 70 hours of time to aid in the food drive.
“Bread for Life is so grateful for the generosity of the community,” said Donna Ayer in a press release. “This donation will help Bread for Life fulfill its mission to feed those in need in Southington.”
