Throughout the past year, the city of Waterbury has held free food distribution events across the city. The USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program has delivered an astonishing 156 million free boxes of food across the US to citizens that have been devastated by the coronavirus, and can't afford to feed themselves, or their families. The US Government is doing an incredible thing by purchasing 6 billion dollars of fresh produce, dairy and meat products directly from US producers of all kinds, and turning right around and giving it all to food banks, other non-profits, religious organizations, and other organizations that help to distribute this lifeline of free food. You've probably seen the news coverage of the massive distribution events that have been held at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, well, Waterbury is doing another one of their events in the morning this week.

Tuesday morning, April 13, 2021, starting at 9AM and running until the last box has been given out, free of charge USDA Farmers to Families food boxes, filled up with fruits, veggies, milk, meat, and dairy products will be distributed, free of charge, at a drive-thru event that will be held at Waterbury's Municipal Stadium, which is located at 1200 Watertown Ave in the city. Although the forecast looks pretty good right now, it is a rain or shine event. It's being hosted by the City of Waterbury, Waterbury PAL, and sponsored by the USDA. If you're having trouble making ends meet, or even worse, going hungry, please try and stop into this community event.
