Our community has many wonderful food pantries and food distribution events. For example, the City of Norwalk partners with the Connecticut Food Bank/FoodShare to offer food distribution weekly at Calf Pasture Beach. Every Wednesday, 9 am – 12 pm, you can drive or walk up to pick up a delicious box of food, no questions asked.
You might wonder the best way to use some of the foods offered. Pantry staples can be healthy and delicious. Our partners at the University of Connecticut Extension Program offer many recipes and tips for cooking with foods that are commonly found in the USDA Farm to Families Food Box (and pantry-staples in general).
