Wilton Food Pantry
The Wilton Food Pantry was established in October of 2010 when a group of town residents came together to address a problem, standing behind the motto “food is not an option, it’s a necessity." Joe says growing up on a family farm, he never missed a meal, and often jokes that they didn't make a lot of money, but they ate well. Food insecurity is something that should never happen, and we want to ensure everybody in our community has quality, nutritious food. We support the pantry through volunteering our time and making donations.

The Lions Club is an active community service organization, and they do a tremendous amount of charitable work in our local communities. Joe volunteers his time and resources to support the Lion’s Club.
