Farmington Food Pantry
Farmington, CT 06032
Details: For more than 30 years, residents of Farmington have supported the Farmington Food Pantry to assist our neighbors in need with food and personal items. Since October 1, 2006, we have occupied space in Amistad Hall on the campus of First Church of Christ, Congregational in Farmington, CT. Our Farmington Food Pantry is a tax-exempt organization operating under the umbrella of the First Church of Christ. The Farmington Food Pantry is a member of Foodshare, which offers food to member pantries at significantly reduced costs. Using our monetary donations, a member of our Pantry Team regularly shops at Foodshare to supplement food donations. And thanks to a generous donation from The Farmington Community Chest, the Pantry operates a program called the "Bargain Shopper" which allows the Pantry to purchase fresh and frozen vegetables and fruits every week in addition to purchasing items most needed on the Pantry shelves. All clients must pre-qualify for use of the Pantry by contacting the Farmington Social Services Department at 860-675-2390. Appointments to shop at the Pantry are scheduled through this department. Clients may shop at the Pantry twice per month.
