Farmers to Family food box distribution in Derby: Mon., Oct. 19

Posted on October 16, 2020 by admin


On Monday, Oct. 19, there will be another Farmers to Family Food box distribution event to benefit those who are in need in the greater Naugatuck Valley. It will be outside of Griffin Hospital in Derby (the former Birmingham Medical Center building).

The U.S. Department of Agriculture F2F food program is being coordinated by TEAM Inc. of Derby, a local non-profit run by CEO/President David Morgan, Friendly Hands Food Bank of Torrington Director Karen Thomas, and Ralph DelBuono of Roma’s Restaurant in Oakville.

“While we have been fortunate enough to host quite a few of these events, sadly the demand is still there,” the organizers said. “We are grateful that we can continue to serve our community and feed those who really need it as our families and businesses remain affected by COIVD-19.”

The boxes will contain 12 pounds of produce, five pounds of meat and five pounds of dairy, plus a gallon of milk.

Please share this information with anyone who may be in need.
