Food pantries
serve veterans
Food Pantry Truck
PUTNAM — The Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse will have a Mobile Food Pantry Truck from 11 a.m. to noon Sept. 5 at the Farmers Market on Kennedy Drive. All veterans in the area are welcome. You must bring your own bags.
This will be the first of once-a-month stops by the mobile food pantry truck. The truck will come the first Thursday of every month.
This was accomplished through a grant for a veterans-only mobile food pantry truck. The truck will serve any veteran. Veterans will have to show a form of veteran’s ID, for example a VA card, a Connecticut driver’s license with the Flag, a DD214 or veterans military retirement card.
The truck will only operate for one hour and will be on a first-come, first-served basis that will be organized and overseen by the Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse.
Pomfret Food Pantry
POMFRET — The Pomfret Food Pantry will also serve any veteran in need from any surrounding town.
The Pomfret Food Pantry is at 207 Mashamoquet Road.
It is open from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays and from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesdays (except the first Tuesday of the month).
