People from all walks of life are thankful recipients of the generosity from local and regional food banks. Many times it is for those who you’d never even think needed assistance. When you think about a food bank and the people who go there, what is the picture in your head? Many people would mention the homeless, the addicted and the mentally ill, for starters. But would you think about someone at your church, a neighbor, someone who is employed and has a safe place to live? Maybe even one of your friends — even a family member? Food banks benefit many sectors of society when people are in dire need of assistance.
One of those food banks, the Seymour Oxford Food Bank (SOFB), is right here in the Naugatuck Valley.
