The primary needs of mankind are food and shelter; the Branford Food Pantry (BFP) addresses that first need—food. The mission of the BFP is to provide groceries for families in need. We will find a way to help you.

          FREE SUMMER MEALS FOR KIDS!                           Any child under 18 is welcome to a free breakfast and/or lunch at both the Branford High School and Tisko Elelmentarty School (Mon-Fri from 7:30-12:30).  We understand that summertime places a huge burden on familes (up to 200 extra meals/child) and this program is designed to help ease that burden.
