Holiday Baskets

Holiday baskets are for Branford Residents only.  Requests can be made by calling the holiday hotline phone number at 203-315-8251 and speaking very clearly or online by emailing office@branfordfoodpantry.org or regular clients can sign up during a regular visit and must include the first and last name, address and phone number of the person requesting a basket.  Requests must specify whether they will pick up their baskets or would like a delivery.  In the case of delivery, they must be home to receive the food.  No food will be left at the door.  On distribution days baskets may be picked up between 9:30 and Noon.
