Debra Ponzek of Aux Delices partnered with Patriot National Bank to hold a food drive to benefit Neighbor to Neighbor. The Greenwich food pantry provides 300,000 meals a year, an increase of 55 percent in the past two years.
"We are so pleased that we were able to help with this food drive by collecting donations at Aux Delices," said Ponzek. "We have always been strong supporters of Neighbor to Neighbor and the excellent work they do providing food and clothes for those of need in the community."
Nonperishable food donations will collected through Friday at Aux Delices in Greenwich and Riverside as well as at branches of Patriot National Bank. The items that are needed most include pasta, 100 percent juice, sauce, jelly, soup, canned fruit, rice and cereal.
"As a community-based business ourselves, we are always happy to team up with and help others in the Greenwich community, said Ponzek. "It's something that's personally very important to us."
