A BIT ABOUT US
Daily Bread Food Pantry distributes food free of charge from our building in downtown Danbury. We have welcomed those in need, whatever their background or circumstances, since 1984. Our guests struggle to provide food for their families and themselves due to illness, disability, job loss, low wages, or personal crises. Whatever the reasons, we are here to help.

When we first opened our doors, we served a handful of folks from a single shopping cart. Today, we typically serve over 600 families each week and are the largest food pantry in the Greater Danbury area. Guests receive approximately 45 pounds of healthy food each time they come to the Pantry. Although availability can vary, we can almost always offer a wide variety of produce, dairy products, meat, non-perishable staples and, of course, bread.
We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and a member of the Danbury Food Collaborative, a consortium of pantries, soup kitchens and nonprofits that work collectively to reduce food insecurity and improve nutrition in our community.
