The Wolcott Food  Pantry volunteers would like to thank the residents of Wolcott that support our mission of helping those in our community that need a hand-up.

Our current food distribution model is a  bi-weekly distribution and we operate as a drive-through service with pre-packed bags of food placed in the trunk or back seat of the clients vehicle.

Our distribution dates for the next few weeks as follows (all Wednesdays):
June 9th, June 23rd,  July 7th and July 21st.
We distribute food between 8:45 AM to 11:45 AM

If you or someone you know is in need of food and is a Wolcott resident, please contact the Wolcott Food Pantry at 203-704-7402. We are located at 158 Woodtick Road, Wolcott, CT.

We accept non-perishable food donations at our drop-off box located at our front door(7 x 24)  or stop in on Monday & Tuesday between 8:30 and 11AM and say hello!.
