Week of Action 2024 June 10th-17th!

With inflation causing a rise in the cost of food, the need for food continues to substantially escalate in our community.

United Way of Meriden and Wallingford will be launching “Week of Action” this June to respond to this need; a week in-person drive to collect nonperishable food items for local pantries: Master’s Manna, GLOW Food Pantry, New Opportunities of Greater Meriden & The Salvation Army-Meriden.

Local companies, groups and individuals are encouraged to participate during our “Week of Action” initiative by donating nonperishable food items to United Way’s office to help the families the local pantries serve. Kindly, drop off your donations to the office Monday-Friday between 9am-3pm OR call the office to set up a different time. Our goal is to collect at least 500 items.

Can you donate:

  • Cereal
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly
  • Pasta
  • Jarred/Canned Sauce
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Soup
  • Rice
