The Thomas Merton Center is thrilled to share that we have been named a model food pantry by Connecticut Foodshare!  Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers who make the vital work we do in our food pantry each day possible!

“The warmth that emanates from your organization is something that we value a lot. If this is how we felt as observers, I can only imagine what it must be like for the people we serve. There’s a lot of caring, respect, and compassion toward those who are in need, but also among staff and volunteers. I could go on and on, but one thing I can say for sure, each of you truly value the mission at Thomas Merton Center. It’s not a job, but a great purpose.”
