Mission and History

Daily Bread Food Pantry, our small local food pantry in downtown Danbury, has welcomed hungry families, whatever their circumstances since 1984.   Thousands of our neighbors struggle to provide

food for their families due to illness, disability, job loss, low wages, and/or personal or family crises. 

The pantry has been able to help over the years with the support of our caring community and dedicated volunteers. 


When we first opened our doors, we served a handful of guests from a single shopping cart. 

Today our pantry serves 700 to 800 families once a month.  Almost 3,000 families visit us each year. 

Our clients receive approximately 50 pounds of healthy food each time they come to the  pantry. 

We offer a wide variety of non-perishable food items along with dairy products, meat, produce and baked goods/bread.


We are a 501-C-3 organization and a member of the Danbury Food Collaborative, a consortium of pantries, soup kitchens and nonprofits who work collectively to have a greater impact on food insecurity in our community.
