Food Pantry

Food Pantry Hours - Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.  

Residents in need may receive an assortment of non-prepared food items. The food pantry operates as a client choice food program. We believe that if you are able to choose the items, you will choose items you will use. Client choice is the most efficient way to provide food because the person taking items will take what they know will be used. 

The Town of Cromwell’s Human Services Division in collaboration with Freihoffer's Bakery provides our clients with fresh bakery items on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 11:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M. only. No pre-registration is required. These items are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that participation in this distribution is not in substitution for your normal monthly food pantry visit and therefore, you may still visit during the month for food, if needed.

If you are in need of food, please see the Human Services Assistant, Lisa Olson for a food pantry application. You will need to show proof of income and residency (i.e. driver’s license or utility bill). 

Please remember that if you have on-going food needs due to limited income, we urge you to also apply for Food Stamps with the Department of Social Services located on Main Street Ext, Middletown - (860) 704-3100 or we can assist you with applying for SNAP online.
