RESCHEDULED for Fri. August 28 – Rep. Yaccarino to Help Distribute Free Fresh Produce to Local Families

Posted on August 26, 2020 by admin


After Tropical Storm Isaias forced the postponement of a previously planned food distribution event earlier this month, I want to announce that the rescheduled food box pickup event will take place on Friday, August 28th at the Connecticut Sportsplex in North Branford.

I encourage constituents, and anyone in need, to make the short drive to this wonderful event that provides families in the region with free, fresh produce at a time when many are struggling financially.

The drive-up food box pickup will take place on Friday, August 28th at Connecticut Sportsplex, 216 Foxon Road in North Branford, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until the supplies run out.

Participants will drive into the Connecticut Sportsplex parking lot, forming a line so volunteers can place the boxes of produce in their vehicles. The boxes will be placed in the backseat or trunk of the vehicle to limit contact, and maintain safe distancing.
