Who We Are
We are a non-profit, community-based, 100 percent volunteer-run food pantry in downtown Bethel, CT.  Our mission is to provide free food and hygiene items to Bethel residents in need, with compassion and respect for clients' dignity.  We maintain good standing with the Connecticut Food Bank and are listed with the 211 referral service.
 
Who We Serve
We serve Bethel residents who have obtained a ConneCT "gray card" or a referral letter from a doctor, social worker or clergyperson.

What We Provide
Clients can visit every other Tuesday and choose their own non-perishable food plus bread, fresh fruit and vegetables and, when available, meat and dairy products.  We also offer important items not covered by food stamps, such as toilet paper, shampoo, deodorant and laundry detergent.
