Potential clients must show proof of Trumbull residency, and income and expenses of household at the initial appointment. Appointments are necessary.
The Trumbull Food Pantry is able to exist almost solely through donations from individuals and groups throughout the community. Trumbull residents are an exceptionally generous group; we receive many donations from them throughout the year. However, we can always use more.
Whether you are an individual who just buys a few extra things while you are at the supermarket, or a community group that runs a large food drive, every little bit helps. If you wish to donate to the food pantry, we happily accept any non-perishable food item, paper products, such as paper towels and toilet paper, and toiletries. A list of most needed items can be obtained by calling our office. Gift cards from local grocery stores are always very welcome.
Donations to the Food Pantry can be made directly at The Center at Priscilla Place between the hours of 9 a.m.- 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. If a large donation is being made, contact their staff ahead of time at 203-452-5198 so they will be available to assist you. In addition to the Food Pantry, there are two community drop-off locations available at the Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St., and also at Trumbull Stop and Shop.
