Summer 2019 Newsletter
We hope you're all having a good summer and staying cool. Here is our summer fundraising newsletter. Please take a moment to read it, and see everything we've been up to, especially the article about feeding children during the summer. Kids know when other kids are hungry, and we feed hundreds of them.
Please consider making a donation to WHEAT to help us feed families with school aged children twice a month during June, July and August.
WHEAT will be distributing groceries to families with school aged children under 18 during June, July and August. This is the third year WHEAT is helping families living at or below the federal poverty level make up for the free or reduced priced meals they qualify for during the school year. These families can’t afford to provide food for an entire month after they pay their rent, health insurance and utilities. WHEAT helps by providing supplemental food to them. **WHEAT does not provide an entire month’s worth of groceries.
If you would like to help us feed the 1,000 children we help, a $20 donation will provide 10 meals. Please see the “food items needed” tab for the list of food items we need.
WHEAT is located at 674 Washington Ave., West Haven, CT. The food pantry is open Tuesday through Friday from 2:00-4:30 p.m. AND the third Saturday of the month from 9:00-noon. Please call 203-931-9877 or email us at email@example.com for more information.
