ANSONIA — In these challenging and difficult times of COVID-19, help can be found at the Ansonia Community Food Pantry.
Located in the Ansonia United Methodist Church, located at 200 West High Street in Ansonia. The Community Food Pantry operates through the cooperative efforts of the Ansonia First Church of God, the St. Henry Cluster in Burkettsville, and Ansonia UMC.
