Shop for Westport's Food Closet - Donations Needed

Westport, CT - Since 1975, the Westport Woman’s Club has provided an Emergency Food Distribution Program for locals in need under the leadership of Westport’s Department of Human Services. This community service is known as The Food Closet and operates on an “on-call” basis year-round, stocked and run by dedicated WWC members.  

With employment on “pause” and household quarantines a new reality for many residents during this current health crisis, the Food Closet has served an increased need and demand for assistance.  The US Postal Worker’s Food Drive, held each May that restocks The Food Closet, was also canceled this spring due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  

For those that are able, please consider purchasing some extra non-perishable groceries to help restock The Food Closet, and serve neighbors in need.  

Food Donations can be dropped at the WWC Clubhouse on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 9am-12pm (44 Imperial Ave, Westport, CT).  If the clubhouse is locked, please call the WWC Office Manager, Sarah at 203-227-4240.   

Monetary donations are also welcomed and helpful to restock The Town Food Closet.  For online donations, visit https://www.westportwomansclub.org/special/food-closet/.  Checks can be made out to “Westport Woman’s Club”, and mailed to WWC, 44 Imperial Avenue, Westport, CT  06880.  The WWC is grateful for all donations, as well as the opportunity to serve those in need within our community during these uncertain times.  

The Westport Woman’s Club, organized in 1907, is a non-profit philanthropic organization dedicated to volunteerism and the raising of funds in support of the educational, charitable, cultural and public health services in Westport and surrounding towns.  You do not have to be a Westport Resident to join The Westport Woman’s Club.  To join, call the WWC office at 203-227-4240.
