Men’s Club at Christ the King Holds Food Drive to Benefit Local Pantries

OLD LYME — During this pandemic, area food pantries have seen an uptick in the numbers of families experiencing food insecurity. The Men’s Club of Christ the King Church is hosting a Food Drive of nonperishables to assist local pantries in feeding our neighbors.

The Drive is being held through Oct. 11 at Christ the King’s Parish Hall entrance.

Visit the Club’s web page for more information.

Help the Men’s Club reach their goal of collecting 1,000 pounds of food — the items in greatest need are: canned fruits, vegetables, meat, and seafood; dried beans, whole grain pastas and rice; and peanut butter.

    Usually a portion of the proceeds from the CTK Men’s Club Summer dinner benefits local food pantries. Covid-19 forced the Men’s Club to cancel the dinner this year so the Food Drive is meant to make up for the lost donation. Please consider your fellow citizens and give generously to help us reach our goal of 1,000 pounds.
