A Bridgeport food pantry is in need of volunteers to meet a record demand for grocery deliveries.
The Bishop Jean Williams food pantry on Worth Street is feeding hundreds of families every single week, but director Mary Green says there is no way to keep up the pace without more help from the community.
Green’s husband, Pastor Lenny Green, filled up a delivery truck this morning to drop off grocery bags at a local senior center.
The couple says they are serving a record number of families every single week, and while their food supply is steady, they do not have enough volunteers to continue.
“We started off serving 300 families, we are up to 700 families, we do a lot of drive throughs, we do a lot of deliveries, we also delivered two to those that are quarantined, we deliver to senior citizens and we need help, we need volunteers,” Lenny says.
