Cheshire’s Food Voucher Program

When you generously donate money to Cheshire Food Drive, Inc., your contribution goes directly toward the Cheshire Food Voucher Program, for which we are the sole financial support. These $40 or $60 food vouchers, distributed by Cheshire Social Services, allow clients to buy their choice of food items at either Stop & Shop or Big Y. This program is so important! At a recent Fall Festival, a veteran approached the Cheshire Food Drive booth and thanked us for continuing to fund the Food Voucher Program. He had relied on the vouchers for many months on his return from active service while looking for work. This veteran is but one example of the Cheshire neighbors who use over 700 vouchers annually. The unexpected can happen at any time. No one should have to choose between food and medical bills or necessities.
