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 clients 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 clients from a single shopping cart. Today, our Pantry serves hundreds of families every week - the COVID-19 pandemic more than tripled weekly numbers and those numbers have not gone down. 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, 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 who work collectively to have a greater impact on food insecurity in our community.
