Ledyard Rotary Foundation is proud to announce that we are now Sponsors of The Ledyard Food Pantry
The Ledyard Rotary Foundation and The Ledyard Rotary have long supported the Ledyard Food Pantry through financial donations and volunteering. On January 5, 2023, the Ledyard Rotary Foundation became the proud sponsor of the Linda C. Davis - Ledyard Food Pantry.
With the Ledyard Rotary Foundation as its new sponsor, the Food Pantry can now expand food access with CT Food Share, the largest distributor to food pantries in the state. It significantly improves the Ledyard Food Pantry’s ability to acquire more food products especially milk, meat, and fresh produce.
The Food Pantry has been in operation for more than 30 years. The past year has been challenging with inflationary pressure on food prices and temporary Covid-19 programs ending. In 2022, the Food Pantry each month (on average) provided food for 50 households each, serving 117 people, for a grand total of 19,197 meals provided all year.The new sponsorship does not change how the Food Pantry is operated. The Food Pantry will remain at its current location in the Red Barn on the Lower Town Green.
Food donations can be dropped off at the pantry during Pantry hours or at drop boxes in any of the following locations: Ledyard Town Hall, Village Market, Parks Place, Holdridge Farm Nursery, Holmberg Orchards, and Mirror Image.
The Food Pantry is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 9 AM to 11 AM. Monetary donations can be mailed to Ledyard Social Services, 741 Colonel Ledyard Highway, Ledyard, CT 06339 – OR- You may also donate via the online portal:
Town of Ledyard - Giving Campaign: https://town-of-ledyard.snwbll.com/giving-portal
If you would like to become a volunteer, please email email@example.com.
Any Ledyard resident wishing to utilize the Pantry for the first time should contact Ledyard Social Services at 860-464-3222 for an application.
The Linda C. Davis Food Pantry is supported almost entirely by generous donors in our community. Now, more than ever, our community's food needs are great. Please consider donating!
Help Us, Help Others
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs.
Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.
Although Rotary clubs develop autonomous service programs, all Rotarians worldwide are united in a campaign for the global eradication of polio. In the 1980s, Rotarians raised US$240 million to immunize the children of the world; by 2005, Rotary's centenary year and the target date for the certification of a polio-free world, the PolioPlus program will have contributed US$500 million to this cause. In addition, Rotary has provided an army of volunteers to promote and assist at national immunization days in polio-endemic countries around the world.
