CT Food Bank Donates Refrigerators to Local Programs

Recently, Connecticut Food Bank (CFB) granted a brand-new, two-door steel refrigerators to two local emergency food programs and member agencies of the Food Center. The local programs are St. Vincent dePaul Place in Norwich and the New London Area Food Pantry.

The goal of the program capacity equipment grant is to increase fresh, healthy food distributions through these programs. The overall goal is to increase people's access to healthy food. The refrigerators will help the programs keep food that they receive through donations and through our Food Center fresher longer.
