Bread Winner

2013.11.29 - South Windsor, CT - "Talk about recycling," says Lydia Lewis, 84, of East Hartford, who every Friday and Saturday morning loads her car with shopping carts full of food deemed too old to be sold but okay to eat from a Stop and Shop in South Windsor. The food, which would otherwise be thrown away, is then delivered by Lewis to Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church and St. John's Episcopal Church in East Hartford where the food is then "distributed to the needy." "I tell everybody I'm a food-aholic," says Lewis, "I can't see this going to waste."  Photograph by Mark Mirko | mmirko@courant.com
