The Salvation Army in Winsted provides Food for Kids Summer Program
WINSTED, CT– The Salvation Army’s Winsted food pantry has remained open and available to serve those in need dealing with food insecurity amid the COVID-19 crisis. Now that school is out and children are home for the summer, families dealing with food insecurity have an increased difficulty providing food for their children.
With the generous support of The Draper Foundation Fund, a fund of the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, along with donations from CT Food Bank/Foodshare, Stop & Shop, and the community at large, The Salvation Army in Winsted’s food pantry has been able to secure needed food to provide a Food for Kids summer program.
The Winsted food pantry serves residents of Winsted, Colebrook, and Norfolk. The hours are Wednesdays 2pm to 5pm and Fridays 10am to noon, by appointment. Residents of these towns do not need to have been previous recipients of the food pantry to receive food. Anyone in need is welcome. The groceries are pre-bagged and provided to recipients outside to keep everyone safe. If you have any questions, please call (860) 379-8444.
