Hunger In Groton?

If you’re standing in a line somewhere in town, one of the eight people around you probably hasn’t had enough to eat. And if your child is in a class of 28 people, 7 of their classmates may not be sure where their next meal is coming from.

Why Are So Many Hungry?

Many of our neighbors simply can’t afford to buy enough food—even when they’re working. Feeding America reports that at least 1/3 of all American families who get help with food have one or more people working.

A Silver Lining

If 60 million Americans are “food insecure,” then about 250 million Americans are not. This means that there are plenty of people who can afford to offer a little help. You may be one of them.

Feeding Families One Bag At A Time

The Town of Groton began our nonprofit neighborhood-based food donation program in 2014 and we are going strong: adding new neighborhoods, collecting more food, and truly making a difference. It’s the easiest, most effective, most empowering way to organize community support for Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry. Every two months, volunteers go door-to-door, picking up food from their neighbors.
