NORWICH - With a yellow plastic shopping bag full of groceries, Norwich resident John Moore left the city’s Salvation Army post Thursday with a sense of contentment.

I need help," Moore, 57, said inside the small 262 Main St. headquarters of the nonprofit, which on Wednesday celebrated 130 years of assisting needy people in the greater Norwich area.

The three-day supply of non-perishables like canned vegetables and boxed mixes would help tide Lori and other food pantry clients over for a while.
