Feeding the Kids
Once again, WHEAT is feeding families with school aged children twice a month during July through Labor Day.
In July we fed 428 children! We expect many more during August since camps and feeding sites end on August 10th.
You can help us to keep the pantry shelves filled with extra food by making a $25 donation which equals 50 meals, or you can drop off food donations at WHEAT, Tuesday through Friday between 9:30 and 4:30.
Please see the list of food items we need under the “Food Items Needed” tab.
Produce DonationsWe’d like to thank the following growers for their weekly donations of produce to WHEAT. Our clients are very appreciative of the fresh vegetables because it’s expensive to buy in the store. So thank you Watson Foods, Hindinger Farm in Hamden, The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit and the West Haven Community Gardens.
Capital CampaignWe are conducting a capital campaign to help pay for repairs to the roof and the parking lot done this Spring. Most of the costs were covered by a HUD grant, but we need to raise $18,000 to cover the remaining costs. Donations can be sent to us or dropped off. Please write “capital campaign” in the memo line of your check. You can also make a donation online at givegreater.org.
