Community Plates Plans Expansion To New Haven County

The food charity combats hunger in Fairfield County and plans to extend its services to the New Haven area and nationwide

 

The Fairfield County-based food charity,Community Plates, plans to expand its services to New Haven County and across the country, theNew Cannan Daily Voice reports. 

According to the article, Kevin Mullins' organization feeds hungry Fairfield County families by combining the efforts of volunteers, donors including local restaurants and markets and a smartphone application. 

Community Plates and its volunteers "rescue" food that would otherwise wind up in the trash, but is still fresh, and deliver it to nearby food pantries on the same day, the article says. 

“We have also seen a phenomenal need in places like New Haven County and Westchester County,” Mullins told the Daily Voice. “And also lots of passionate people in those places who are ready to make a difference. So we will be launching in both those counties later this year.”

Community Plates has already started its expansion process, the article says, noting that they've established locations in Albuquerque, N.M., and Columbus, Ohio.

The non-profit organization could always use more hands, so if you're interested in helping out, more information is available here. Donations can also be facilitated through the Community Plates website.
