Critical Need for Food Items
Friday - July 27, 2012
We are currently experiencing an extreme shortage of many of our staple foods. We are desperately in need of the following:
- Tuna Fish
- Pasta Sauce
Any donations of these items would be incredibly important to us as our pantry continues to distribute food to roughly 1,000 unique individuals, 300-400 of which are children, every month.
Thank you to all who have supported our continuing efforts to meet our community's needs, especially during this difficult time of transition while moving.

Thursday - July 19, 2012
While our old building undergoes repairs, St. Vincent de Paul Place has made a temporary move to the old St. Joseph's School building at 120 Cliff St. (See HERE for a map.)
We will be serving meals and distributing food bags at our normal times at our new location.

Friday - July 6, 2012
The time has come to finally undertake our planned (temporary) move out of our location at 10 Railroad Place while building repairs are underway.
We will be moving to the St. Joseph's School building at 120 Cliff St. as previously planned. (See HERE for a map.)
HOWEVER, the coming week will be a bit of a transition and we ask that everyone helps spread the word of our plans while making the move.
KITCHEN AND DINING: The final day at 10 Railroad Place will be Saturday, July 7, 2012. The following week, from Monday, July 9 through Wednesday, July 11, we will serve meals out of Central Baptist Church at 2 Union St across from City Hall. Then from Thursday, July 12 onward we will be operating out of our new location at St. Joseph's School.
FOOD PANTRY: The food pantry will continue to give out food bags from our Railroad Place location on Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday (July 7, 9, and 11 respectively). On Saturday, July 14 the pantry will be closed for one day while we finalize our move. We encourage anyone who would normally have come to receive food on the 14th to make their weekly visit on either Monday or Wednesday. Starting Monday, July 16 we will be operating at normal days and times out of St. Joseph's School.
ADVOCACY AND OFFICE: From Monday through Wednesday (July 9 through 11) our offices will be unavailable. Our case worker will be available at Central Baptist and other needs can be met by Norwich Human Services nearby at 80 Broadway. On Thursday, July 12 we will be set up along with our kitchen at St. Joseph's.
We thank everyone for bearing with us through this difficult time and hope to be able to meet the needs of our community with as little interruption as possible.
