Elks Lodge 2224, which serves North Haven and Hamden, recently presented the St. Ann’s Food Pantry’s mobile food bank with a check for $1,750. The funds were obtained through a special grant applied for by Lodge 2224 from the Elks National Foundation philanthropic fund.
The mobile pantry brings fresh vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products and whole grains to communities where households lack access to these foods because of transportation barriers or where community programs lack the capacity for providing fresh foods.
The Elks conduct charitable projects and patriotic programs in the communities they serve. Contact Andy Caporossi (203-248-2224) for more information.
