2023 our 50th Year

This year we will hold the 50th (!)  annual town-wide food drive on the Congregational Church Green during the first weekend in November.

We would also like to remind you that we are still facing an increased need for the Food Vouchers that we fund, so our need for monetary donations to support the Food Voucher Program has also increased. Please consider donating here.

More specific details may be available at the bottom of this page.

The Cheshire Food Drive, Inc. has two main functions and we participate in several regular events to carry out those functions.

The Cheshire Food Drive, Inc.:

  1. is the sole funding source for the Cheshire food voucher program (Donate)
  2. hosts the annual Food Drive during the first weekend in November (2023 will be our 50th event)

Our regular events are:

  1. Annual town-wide food drive during the first weekend in November
  2. Give Local online fundraising event by the not for profit organizations in the Waterbury/Litchfield area in April

We often participate in:

  1. Cheshire Chamber of Commerce's Fall Festival at Bartlem Park in early September
  2. Cheshire Chamber of Commerce's Home, Health, and Garden Show at Cheshire High School usually in March

For the fiftieth year, we plan to collect food and monetary donations at the Congregational Church Green and in front of Stop & Shop on Saturday and Sunday November 4 and 5, 2023.

Food donations stock the shelves at local pantries and monetary donations fund the town's Food Voucher Program.

Please consider donating food or money at the church green or here.

Thank you.
