Holiday Meals

Our Community Food Pantry serving Southwick, Tolland and Granville is pleased to report the success of our Thanksgiving food drive.  With the help of our community we were able to distribute meals to 95 families.  Included in this meal were homemade pies made by the students and staff of Southwick-Tolland Regional High School, who baked a total of 118 pies, which allowed us to not only give them out for the Thanksgiving holiday, but also in the weeks after as a part of the usual monthly distribution. 

Now we are in our final push to supply meals for Christmas for the needy in our community.  Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are going into Christmas already having turkeys to distribute, but we’re still in need of these and other items.  We could also use canned veggies, potatoes, stuffing and boxed desserts.

Those looking for a little help getting a meal on the table for this upcoming holiday should sign up at the Our Community Food Pantry (220 College Hwy, Southwick, MA) by Monday, December 17th so that we will be able to determine how much food we’ll be distributing.  Christmas meals will be distributed during regular business hours during the week of December 17th – 20th.

Please help out; a small donation can help make this a special Christmas for all.
