Food Assistance


The Stafford Food Bank is housed in the Stafford Community Center, and has a wide variety of non-perishable food items.  The Food Bank accepts donations of toiletries, baby items, and occasionally some cleaning supplies.  Due to the increased economic strain being experienced by many due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, anyone in need of assistance at this time can ask for help.  To request food pantry assistance, call (860)684-7752 or (860)684-3906 during our regular business hours.

Donations to the food bank can be made by check, made out to "Stafford Food Bank", and can be mailed to the Stafford Community Center, 3 Buckley Hwy., Stafford Springs, CT 06076.

Please include a note if your donation is in memory of someone, so we can send a card to the family.     


Mobile Foodshare is a program run by CRT that provides food assistance every other week to those experiencing food insecurity.  The truck provides an ever-changing assortment of foods that may include fruits and vegetables, breads, dairy products, meats, and frozen meals.  Distribution is every other Thursday (excluding holidays) from 9:00 to 9:30 am. behind the Stafford Senior Center, 3 Buckley Hwy.  Recipients should bring their own bags and line up inside the Senior Center Hall.  The doors to the hall will be opened at 8:45.
