Cheshire Community Food Pantry



July 3, 2018, Cheshire, CT – The Cheshire Community Food Pantry would like to make sure that all of our school aged clients have Back to School Supplies for the 2018-19 School Year. Please consider adopting a child.   We are collecting information from our clients and will have information cards on each child’s size and color preferences. We ask that all donations be submitted to the food pantry by Monday, August 9th. This is to provide families enough time to plan for the first day of school.


To adopt a child please contact the pantry at 203.699.9226 or email

We now have more refrigeration!

Now that we are in our new building at 175 Sandbank Road and we have lots of freezer space and refrigeration.  We can finally take non-expired perishable items as well as non-perishable goods.  Consider a donation of Eggs, Butter, Milk, Cheese, Yogurt, Meat or Poultry.  Many times the grocery stores have buy one/get one free – We’ll be happy to take the free one! We also have a vestibule with a refrigerator so you can drop off donations when it is convenient for you.

This Campaign has ended. No more pledges can be made.
