Many people go hungry in our country. There are about 50 million Americans that struggle with food insecurity. It’s the sad truth, so it was only right to donate to the Wilton Food Pantry for our third act of kindness. The Wilton Food Pantry works with community members, local businesses, stores, and more to help hungry people, as well as educate and inform. Here are a couple facts about the WFP:
-They served 503 residents in Wilton in 2012. Of those 503 residents, 165 were children.
-They WFP averaged 65 visits per month in 2012. They had a high of 89 visits in August.

Our goal is to inspire others to practice kindness and pay it forward. We have created a landing page dedicated to our good deeds, and we encourage you to get involved by performing, supporting and inspiring acts of kindness!
