More than 200 families served during monthly Conn. Food Bank Danbury distribution

A Connecticut Food Bank Mobile Pantry drive-thru food distribution in Danbury on Thursday served 227 households. The monthly distribution is a partnership with Danbury Public Schools and the Danbury Family Learning Center, which provides the site and volunteer support. 

Connecticut Food Bank Chief Operating Officer Daniel Gomez said the distribution is one of more than two dozen Mobile Pantry distributions the Connecticut Food Bank supports each month. The distributions are a way to fill gaps caused by transportation barriers for people in need, or where its network of member agencies does not have the ability to store larger quantities of food or perishable foods. 

Danbury Public Schools Director of Family, School & Community Partnerships Dr. Anne Mead says the food is needed no that children are home all day.  Combined, Connecticut Food Bank member agencies and mobile pantries represent 500 food access points for people in need.
