September is Hunger Action Month

The CCGB is participating in Hunger Action Month which is taking place during the month of September.

Lots of fun activities are being planned to raise awareness about hunger, including the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Opening of SEEK, and the kick-off of our Virtual Food Drive on September 14, which just so happens to be Hunger Action Day.

A ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the inaugural SALT OF THE EARTH ENTERPRISE KITCHEN, CCGB's shared-use commercial kitchen, will take place on Wednesday, September 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church here in Bridgeport.

Our Virtual Food Drive will kick-off on September 14. Last year, the CCGB raised almost $30,000 during the Virtual Food Drive. For 2017, the CCGB is looking to raise $35,000 for our friends and neighbors, who reply on food assistance to feel themselves and their families. You can make a secure on-line donation @

We are urging everyone to "wear orange" on September 14, and help the CCGB to "beat hunger."

For more information, please call the Council of Churches @ 203-334-1121.
