The Wethersfield Food Bank is a place for people who are currently struggling with food insecurity. During this very tough time of COVID-19, they have done an amazing job at helping the people who needed that little extra food to get by.
The food bank is always there to help people who are struggling for food. For more information about the Wethersfield Food Bank, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or their phone number; 860-721-2890.
Christina Morra-Tiu, the overseer of the Food Bank, says that the donations from the community were outstanding during the global pandemic. The amount of donations that had never been seen before, as the food bank even had conference rooms filled with food.
Whenever they asked for something or needed something, the community jumped right on it. Christina Morra-Tiu says that “I was seeing new faces along with the already or recurring faces needing the food” that they had collected.
But to keep the Wethersfield community safe and healthy, the Wethersfield Food Bank had to adjust how family’s secured the food they needed. Where before families would make an appointment and come into the food bank, now pre-made bags were made to keep family’s and Wethersfield Food Bank employees safe and healthy and community members fed.
Through changes and an incredible amount of donations from our community, the Wethersfield Food Bank was able to do great work to help families within our community.
