Farmers to Families Continues Aug 7

The Mayor’s Office and the United Way will be sponsoring a third Farmers to Families Produce Distribution program for this Friday. The program is from the United States Department of Agriculture.

“There is a change in time and location for this event,” stated Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu. “This Farmers to Families free distribution will be held on Friday, August 7th from 12pm – 2pm at the parking lot across the street from City Hall.” 

Interested parties are asked to enter the parking lot on North Main Street and will then exit onto Hope Street.

The pallets with food boxes will be unloaded from a truck and divided into stations with volunteers at each station. The line of cars will be directed into one of the lines, and then to a station where the food will be put into the back seat or the trunk.

“Area soup kitchens and pantries are invited to pick up boxes, as are residents of the other United Way communities – Plymouth, Burlington and Plainville,” said Donna Osuch President of the United Way. 

For more information or to volunteer for the Farmers to Families program, or to volunteer, please call the Mayor’s Office at 860-584-6250.
