WILTON — Pamela Graham doesn’t like to see food go to waste — especially if that food comes from her own bakery.

“I think there are people hungry everywhere and, if you have food, you should never throw it away,” Graham said. “ I just don’t believe in hunger.”

And so, soon after she opened The Pastry Hideaway in May, she decided to donate any leftover food to Person-to-Person, a nonprofit with sites in Norwalk and Darien that provide food, clothing and other basic services to lower-income individuals and families in lower Fairfield County.

GREENWICH — Staff and supporters of a Greenwich-based social service agency that helps people with developmental disabilities spent the first of six state-mandated furlough days rallying against state budget cuts. Some 200 people connected with Abilis swarmed Town Hall Wednesday morning to criticize a budget impasse that has temporarily cut 10 percent of the nonprofit’s operating expenses for its day and residential programs until a state spending plan is reached. The loss of what agency officials said was between $400,000 and $500,000 has forced Abilis — and many other of the state’s social service agencies — to close down for six days to stay within their spending limits.
