Traditional food drives supply nonperishable items that we can share with our network of community-based programs. We work hard to provide a variety of foods to meet needs and we seek to make those foods as nutritious as possible. We can help to partner you with a community agency near you so the food you collect can have an impact on those in need in your community. To help you encourage donations that will have a positive effect on nutrition for those we help, view and download this list of healthy food donation suggestions.
To get connected with one of our valued partners, call us at (203) 469-5000 to speak with someone about your food drive.
Because Connecticut Food Bank relies on volunteer labor, we consider delivery of the collected food to Connecticut Food Bank as part of your donation.
Our warehouses are open for deliveries Monday through Friday. Click here for directions and hours. Please call to make delivery arrangements before you visit.
We will weigh your donation provide you with an acknowledgement.
