SUPPORT FOR THE KENT FOOD BANK
The Kent Community Fund is a partner of the town-operated Kent Food Bank through its membership in the Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare, which is available to nonprofits such as KCF. Each month the Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare makes one or two deliveries of low-cost and free food to the Kent Food Bank, located in the lower level of the Kent Community House. In 2021, more than 4 tons of food came from the Connecticut Food Bank. Through its contributions, KCF has been able to ensure a steady supply of canned goods, frozen meats and chicken and fresh produce.
Contributions to the Kent Food Bank are welcome throughout the year. Especially needed are non-perishable foods, personal care items, paper goods (tissues, paper towels, toilet paper), coffee, laundry detergent, etc.
Non-perishable Food Donations can be brought to the first selectman’s office in Town Hall during regular working hours; additional donation locations are located at Davis IGA and at other businesses and churches in Kent.
