New Food Pantry Program

The Branford Food Pantry shall conduct a pilot program to begin client shopping on Tuesday evenings from about 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. beginning on November 3, 2015. Tuesday evening was selected because it coincides with the CDR family dining night.

We have a program called "Snacks for Kids".  Each week families will receive a bag containing 5 snack items for each child to take to school.  Please help to support this new effort by donating the following:  pudding/jello cups; fruit cups; raisins (small boxes); cereal/granola bars; small bags of chips/cookies/pretzels; snack crackers;  NO NUTS OR PEANUT PRODUCTS.  Thanks for your help in this new effort.  

In addition, we have an ongoing need for routine items such as cereal, peanut butter, soup, stew and coffee. Please consider sponsoring a drive to collect these items.
