Here in Fairfield, we're a week into summer, where schools are closed. This means families who rely on school breakfast and lunch throughout the school year can really struggle to provide these extra meals for their children. Food pantry donations are even more critical during this time, to ensure our clients' children are fed. Please consider donating a bag or two of non-perishable groceries, we accept donations at 636 Old Post Rd, M-F, 9am-5pm. Thank you!

Who doesn't love to celebrate the small and big wins in life? That can be challenging when you might not have the means to do so. The 5th grade class of Osborn Hill Elementary School created 40 "Celebration Kits" to be distributed in our Food Pantry to clients who would like to celebrate any special occasion...birthday, graduation, new home, good report card, or any moment that calls for celebration!

Did you know disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby? And that no state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers. It's no surprise that 1 in 3 U.S. families struggles to provide enough diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry and healthy. Please help us fill this need for our clients by donating diapers to the spring diaper drive hosted by State Reps Brenda Kupchick and Laura Devlin.
Our Food Pantry is in need of a few specific items this month! We're heading into the summer, which is generally a slow time for Food Pantry donations. Please consider helping us by donating some of these items and helping feed our families, especially those with children who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year. Standard sizes of items to feed/care for a family of four are appreciated. Thank you!
