State and local agencies are working to make sure families in need have access to healthy food as food insecurity continues to be an issue across Connecticut.
The Rowayton Gardeners hosted a breakfast food drive Friday and will again on Saturday at the Rowayton Community Center at 33 Highland Ave. in Norwalk.
Drop-off hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Organizers are asking for oatmeal, cereal, granola bars, shelf stable milk, peanut butter, pancake mix, syrup and fruit. Stop & Shop and ShopRite gift cards are also being accepted.
The items will benefit Darien-based non-profit Person-to-Person's food program.
The food drive follows Gov. Ned Lamont's recent announcement the Connecticut Department of Agriculture has distributed nearly $5 million in federal funding to emergency feeding programs since the start of the pandemic.
It's part of the state's effort to make sure those in need have access to fresh, locally grown food.
