Other Ways You Can Help:
Look for our yellow tags on the shelves at Southbury grocery stores and donate an item (or two!) in the blue donation bins as you exit the store.

We rely solely on the generosity of our community! Consider mailing a donation to Southbury Food Bank P.O. Box 68 Southbury, CT 06488 or visit our website at www.southburyfoodbank.org where you can give securely online via PayPal.

Adopt-A-Shelf – Commit to “adopting” a shelf at the food bank. We will provide you with an available shelf that you can stock each month (for example, peas, rice, peanut butter, etc.). You will be responsible for collecting 40 cans/jars/boxes of that item each month and then come in to stock your shelf at the food bank. We have several families that have sponsored a shelf and depending on the item, this can be done for as little as $50.00/month!
