Stock the Shelves is an initiative started by a group of community leaders who
became friends through their volunteer activities and want to address the ongoing
issue of food insecurity in Northwest Connecticut.
The group is working with area businesses, civic groups, municipalities, schools and churches
to organize food drives on an ongoing basis throughout the year. The food is collected,
sorted and distributed to food banks and community soup kitchens in the region.
