To make a cash donation, please go to the Donate page. Cash donations provide us the flexibility to purchase food items that are most in need at any time. However, there are lots of other ways to support our work and all are deeply appreciated. Listed below are the most popular ways to help but feel free to contact us with any other ideas you may have.

Donations of food from individuals, groups and businesses are vital to the work we do. We accept donations at the Pantry at the following times, though if you would like to make a large donation and the listed  times are not convenient, please contact us.

If possible, please bring donations before 12:30 PM. This allows our volunteers to sort and shelve the items without having to stay later. If you find the Pantry locked, please call 203-826-8252.


We are always in need of these popular non-perishable items:

  • Canned tuna, salmon or chicken

  • Beans (canned or dry)

  • Peanut butter

  • Meal-in-a-can (beef stew, spaghetti & meatballs, etc)

  • Soup (especially chicken noodle)

  • Rice (1, 2 or 3 pound bags)

  • Pasta

  • Macaroni and cheese

  • Canned corn

  • Canned vegetables

  • Canned fruit

  • Breakfast cereal (hot or cold)

  • Marinara sauce and canned tomato products

While our primary mission is to provide food, our clients greatly appreciate toiletries and cleaning products such as:​

  • Shampoo

  • Deodorant

  • Toothpaste

  • Laundry detergent
