Blue Back Square Food Donation Pick Up - Friday mornings

Save to Favorites

Chrysalis Center, Inc.


We are looking for a volunteer to pick up donations of food from Whole Foods Market in Blue Back Square in West Hartford on Friday mornings and bring it to Freshplace, our fresh food pantry on our main campus at 255 Homestead Avenue, Hartford, CT. The food will fit in a SUV/Minivan and the volunteer opportunity will take about an hour. You can pick up between 8:00 and 9:00 am and then head to Freshplace so we can help you unload.

The food donated by Whole Foods can used immediately at Freshplace, our innovative onsite food pantry, to provide nutritious, fresh food to Freshplace members from Hartford's North End.

If interested, please contact Nancy Sherman, Volunteer and Outreach Manager at Chrysalis Center, at

Thank you!
