NVSK manages two Free Pantry Boxes in Naugatuck, CT that are available 24/7 to those in need. One near the firehouse on Old Firehouse Road and the other across from Riddles Pub on North Main St.
Free Meal Delivery Service is provided to Naugatuck residents Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays mornings.
Our team of volunteers are what make NVSK possible. We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to assist with food preparation, packaging, delivery, administrative tasks and more. We also welcome students, troop members and others wishing to add to their community service hours.
Special thanks to the Elks Lodge No. 967 for donating the use of their kitchen to cook the meals.
