Now in our 42nd year, the non-profit Cheshire Food Drive continues to be the sole financial support of the town’s emergency Food Voucher Program, which distributes more than 700 food vouchers yearly. Vouchers are valued at $40, $60 for families of four or more, and are redeemable at the Stop and Shop or Big Y stores in Cheshire. Please help us to provide unrestricted food assistance to families in need of short-term help. We also sponsor food collections at schools and local businesses, culminating in our November town-wide drive on the First Congregational Church Green that benefits area pantries.
