Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital and Horses & Hounds teamed up to sponsor a Pet Food Drive, and recently delivered many dozens of bags and cans of cat and dog food. Hunger Relief boxes, which Stop & Shop patrons purchase at the register, provided program participants with several nutritious meals.

Monetary contributions from Arrow Concrete, Carmon Community Funeral Homes, the Gables Homeowners Association, the Hunt Glen Community, the Margaret H. Lindberg Fund and the Student Government at Granby Memorial High School will help subsidize the cost of replenishing Food Bank.
The volunteer-run Granby Food Bank subsists solely on donations from the community and is most grateful to all who support our program. Donations are gratefully accepted during food bank hours on Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Thursday from 2 to 3:30 p.m., as well as during business hours at the Granby Senior Center. Anyone interested in volunteering for this important community resource can call 860-653-5514 for more information.
