Morning Glory adds a Marketplace

DANBURY—In addition to providing a hot and healthy meal to the hungry and homeless in the Danbury area on a daily basis, the Morning Glory Breakfast Program of Catholic Charities also operates a Marketplace.

“The Morning Glory Marketplace is a unique non-food pantry program that provides items such as cleaning products, paper goods and hygiene products. These items are not covered by food stamps and can be expensive for a family to purchase,” said Michele Conderino, Director of the Morning Glory program.

This service is provided to participants of Catholic Charities and other programs in Danbury.

“What started as a mobile program grew so big that it is now permanently stationed out of the New Heights program, located at 64 West Street in Danbury,” she said.

Starting this month, the Marketplace will operate the first, second and third Friday of the month from 11 am-1 pm. Items that are available for distribution are made possible through donations from local corporations, businesses, groups and individuals.
