“Bloomin’ 4 Good” Promotion to Help Food Pantry

The Norfolk Food Pantry is encouraging Norfolk shoppers to pick up a bouquet at the Winsted Stop & Shop during May as part of the food chain’s “Bloomin’ 4 Good” promotion. Every time an appropriately marked $10.99 bouquet is sold, the Norfolk Food Pantry will receive $1.

The food pantry, https://norfolkct.org/directory/the-norfolk-net-food-pantry-clothes-closet/located in Battell Chapel, 12 Litchfield Rd., has experienced increased demand since covid struck. Demand increased even more when inflation soared following the pandemic. In fact, the pantry served 22 families this past Tuesday, a one-day record according to volunteer Marie-Christine Perry. 

Perry said food items particularly needed this week are chunky soups, cookies and children’s snacks.
