The WWC Food Closet works in conjunction with Human Services at Westport Town Hall. When individuals/families who are in need contact Human Services, we fulfill their requests for food by providing them with bags of groceries and with Stop and Shop gift cards (for them to purchase meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, and dairy products). When the bags are packed, the Food Closet workers deliver them to Town Hall. The recipients remain anonymous to us and are able to pick up their groceries and food cards at Town Hall. (more…)
