Every week, the Branford Food Pantry serves neighbors without jobs or who have reduced hours, the elderly living on Social Security, single parents, people with disabilities, and the working poor. They all seek help to make it from day to day; help that might enable them to pay their rent or heating bill, or simply have a nutritious meal. The mission of the Branford Food Pantry is to provide groceries for Branford residents in need.
