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.

The Branford Food Pantry is thankful for the outstanding support from the volunteers, residents, business, schools and churches that resulted in the BFP being able to meet the needs of our community this past Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We are very thankful to have this strong support in these challenging economic times.    __________________________________________________

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 effort.  


Feed Branford Kids

  The Branford Food Pantry has just started a new program called Feed Branford Kids.  Each week this ‘backpack’ program will provide breakfast and lunch items to any elementary school child in need of help with weekend meals.  Parents may request these ‘backpacks’ by contacting the child’s teacher or the school social worker. 


Ongoing Need

  The Branford Food Pantry has a constant need for routine items such as cereal, peanut butter, soup, stew and coffee.  Please consider sponsoring a drive to collect these items.
