A good rule of thumb when considering making a food donation is to ask yourself if you would eat it, feed it to your children, or serve it to your Mom. If you answer yes –please know we will gladly accept it with a grateful heart and open arms. (*No expired foods.)
Just leave us a message at 860-388-1988. During the week we will return your call within 24 hours to schedule a time for you to deliver food to a location near you. On weekends we recommend dropping off your donation directly at any of these locations.
