Congregational Church (SBCC) in Southbury has become a sponsor for the
"Adopt-a-Shelf Program" at Southbury Food Bank (SFB). As a sponsor, SBCC selected the "Cream
Soups and Chowders" shelf to be labeled "South Britain Congregational
Church" to keep stocked by collecting and delivering 60-80 cans of creamed
soups and chowders per month to SFB.
Church members, their children and friends of the church rotate making
deliveries, learning the stocking procedures, and touring the food bank to
learn more about the needs of the community.
Deliveries are at specific times which are different and sensitive to
shopping times. Church members Chris
Dreton, Jodi Mitchell, Linda Perry and Sue Wilson made recent deliveries of
cans and stocked the designated shelf. Jen Troy, on the Board of Directors of
SFB, gave her fellow church members tours and explained the procedures. For
