Food Bank seeks donations to carve out hunger
With Thanksgiving a week away, the Connecticut Food Bank of Fairfield is asking residents to help feed the region's needy.
The Fairfield branch of the Food Bank is low on donations. Manager Jim Stuhlman says he has about 2,700 turkeys to give away, but needs about 4,400. He's also seeking donations of non-perishable items.
Sandy Hook resident Tracy James-Terry helped out in that department by dropping off a whopping 103 pounds of non-perishables Thursday. She plans to give turkeys as well.
"If everybody took care of their own community, you know, we can make a difference," James-Terry says. "I can't ? fathom starving children."
The Food Bank will start distributing all the fixings for a proper Thanksgiving meal starting at 7 a.m. Monday. Stuhlman says the center will be accepting drop-off donations through Sunday evening.
