Date and Time

Event description


United Way of Greater New Haven, in partnership with the Connecticut Food Bank, New Haven Reads and Read to Grow, is supporting two critical community needs this summer: access to food and access to books.


Kids, teens and their families are often faced with the dilemma of having limited to no access to food once school is out, making summer the toughest time for families relying on school food programs. Summer months can also cause significant learning loss for students who lose achievement gains made during the previous school year.

By increasing access to food and books, we are supporting the most vulnerable children and families so they can have healthy minds and healthy bodies.

Volunteers will help set-up the food pantry, hand out food and help with break down, and/or set up the book table and distribute books to children who's families are waiting for the food pantry. Below are the details for the Scantlebury Park dates.


Scantlebury Park (books and food)
139 Ashmun Street
New Haven, CT 06511

Monday, July 8th 4:30-6:30 pm
Monday, August 5th 4:30-6:30 pm

As the events gets closer, we will send emails to everyone registered with day-of details, parking information, and photo release forms. We look forward to seeing you for a fun summer volunteering in the community!
