A COLLECTIVE EFFORT TO ADDRESS FOOD HARDSHIP, HUNGER AND THE DIRECT CORRELATION TO OVERALL HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Griffin Health and TEAM, Inc., distributes fresh, nutritious food to Lower Naugatuck Valley Food Banks monthly with the help of Connecticut Basement Systems in Seymour.  The food is purchased at wholesale prices and is delivered by Cheshire-based distributor Bozzuto’s Inc. The distribution is part of Griffin’s ongoing initiative to improve the health and wellbeing of its community by partnering with community-based organizations – such as TEAM Inc. – to help residents improve their social determinants of health, including access to fresh and healthy foods. The donated food includes refrigerated and frozen fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, eggs, milk, cheese, beans, fish, chicken, and beef. Volunteers from Griffin Health, TEAM, Inc., and other local businesses and organizations will separate the items for pick-up by five area food pantries.
