DDG: Teacher Turns Into “Grocery Hero” For Community

A Connecticut middle school science teacher has become a kind of “grocery hero” during the pandemic. Louis Goffinet started making shopping trips for people in need and has provided hundreds of people with free groceries over the last few months.

He turned to Facebook for community support and they came through with donations for his Neighbors Grocery Relief Project. So far, Goffinet says he’s raised around $40-thousand and has made about 130 shopping trips for folks who need a hand right now.

The teacher wants to continue helping his community in some way, even after the pandemic is behind us. “I think it’s a reminder that we all have the potential to help out a lot more than we think,” Goffinet explains, “and to sort of take the jump and see what we can do.”
