The Trumbull Food Pantry is available to all Trumbull residents who meet income guidelines or are facing food insecurity. We do not turn anyone away. We encourage residents to reach out who may be facing an unexpected circumstance such as a layoff, illness or have concerns going to the store. During difficult times, we want to reduce the stress our families face by meeting a basic need. The Food Pantry is delivering groceries and Home Delivered Meals in lieu of the Congregate Senior Lunch Program to seniors and others in need. Income restrictions do not apply. All calls, deliveries and pickups are confidential. We are able to assist families, children, adults, and seniors. Drive thru services and shopping are by appointment only to ensure the confidentiality of the shopper. To sign up for these services please call (203) 452-5136 for assistance.
