Karen Kaplan
 
Hello Hamden Families, 
 
We have some important news about the monthly Free School Based Farmers Market that is usually held at Dunbar Hill School.
CT Food Bank with the support of the Hamden School District have been doing the monthly food truck distributions at Dunbar Hill School in the afternoon.
 
Because of safety & precautionary reasons, this distribution will be moved to Hamden Middle School until further notice. We also added Christ The Bread of Life distribution to our Hamden Middle School Site. This means there will be two distributions per month until further notice. The name of this free food distribution is called Drive-up, Fill-up & Go.
 
Hamden Middle School
Address: 2623 Dixwell Ave.
Next Distribution Date & Time: Wednesday, April 8th     4:30pm-5:30pm
 

Please note: We are taking all precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Therefore, this distribution will be set-up as a drive-thru site. This means we are asking that all families, when arriving to the site, remain in their cars. Please do not get out to form a line. Volunteers will be directing traffic and keeping order. Volunteers will have pre-packed bags of food ready to hand to each car as they pull up. There is no need to bring bags, No ID necessary.

 

In order for this food distribution to operate smoothly and effectively, families will be given specific instructions to follow. We are asking that all families follow the guidelines and be patient with us, as you wait in line.
