Food Security

Helping Individuals and Families stretch their monthly food budgets


TEEG’s Food Security program empowers families and individuals to stretch their monthly budget by giving them healthy food to supplement their home pantries. Additionally, we offer nutrition and health education information with every distribution, enabling us to feed both the bodies and the minds of those accessing our services.

Monthly Commodity Distribution: TEEG believes food security is a basic right. Our monthly distribution program helps families stretch limited dollars to pay monthly bills and purchase perishable food, while relying on TEEG for staple food items.

Emergent Food Distribution: TEEG ensures adequate nutritional resources for every member of our community. Our food pantry is available to help any community member in an emergency.

Mobile Food Distribution: TEEG is staffing and supporting the CT Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry at the St. Mary’s School Parking lot on 23 Marshall St. Putnam on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 10:00am-12:00pm. This helps provide more individuals with access to fresh/perishable foods beyond what the local food pantries are able to offer.
