Food Drive

One in ten people in New Britain rely on food assistance, according to studies done by Foodshare, an organization based in Bloomfield, CT, devoted to feeding the hungry of the Greater Hartford area. This number represents 7,000 people, including 3,000 children. FLCR tries to help in any way it can to alleviate this burden of hunger in this richest state in the nation. An on-going food drive is one way to fight the problem. Parishioners are asked to bring in canned goods as well as toiletries for local pantry distribution . Sometimes creative methods are employed to motivate donations.
