The Food Bank welcomes donations of all perishable and non-perishable, unopened food.

Donations can be dropped off at our warehouse store in Stamford. If your donation is too large to drop off (more than 4 boxes of food), we may be able to pick up the food.

In deciding what food to donate, a good rule of thumb is to donate the same food that your own family would eat.

The following is a list of the most needed food for 2016:

  • Canned Chicken
  • Canned Tuna
  • Breakfast Cereals
  • Pasta
  • Pork & Beans
  • Canned Fruits
  • Juices (Bottles & Boxes)
  • Powdered Milk
