ENFIELD- The Enfield Food Shelf is participating in the Feinstein Challenge again this year. This is the 16th year Rhode Island philanthropist, Alan Shawn Feinstein, through his Feinstein Foundation will divide $1 million among hunger-fighting agencies nationwide. Donations of food, cash, checks and pledges during March and April qualify for the challenge. The more donations received, the more money will received to help Enfield individuals and families in need. Food donations can be made at the Enfield Food Shelf, 96 Alden Ave., on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Thursdays from noon to 6:30 p.m. Arrangements can also be made to have larger donations picked up. Alternatively, drop-offs can be made at the Enfield Senior Center during their hours of operation, or at any Enfield fire station. Monetary donations are tax deductible and may be made payable to the Enfield Food Shelf and mailed to P. O. Box 699, Enfield CT 06083. Online donations may also be made through PayPal by visiting www.enfieldfoodshelf.org. For more information and assistance, call Linda Bridge, executive director, at 860-741-7321.
