The Pantry

The Pantry

It’s hard to learn on an empty stomach. Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT has a foodshare program called The Pantry, where food donations are collected and distributed to students who should be more hungry for knowledge than for food.

Donated food and household supplies go from bins around the campus to an actual pantry where “insecure” students can get them to help them through the semester.

Dessert:

Summer berry shortcake

Clam chowder

Clam chowder with chives and bacon. Extremely good.
