Thank you for supporting the pantry during this difficult COVID-19 health emergency. The Food Pantry is working closely with the guidelines provided by the CDC and Farmington Valley Health District. At this time, to reduce the volunteer interaction necessary to process food donations we believe for the short term MONETARY DONATIONS via secure Pay Pal on our website or a check IS THE BEST AND SAFEST OPTION to support our community. Thank you! 


The Farmington Food Pantry is funded entirely through donations and operates as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Non-perishable, non-expired foods may be dropped off at one of our two locations. Drop-offs at the Pantry are welcome from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (regular First Church business hours) in Amistad Hall. The Pantry need not be open for you to make a donation. Drop off containers are located inside the double front doors of Amistad Hall and outside the pantry door in the Fellowship Room located on the lower level of Amistad Hall. You are also able to drop off food at the fire station across the street from First Church from 7:00 a.m. - 5 p.m. Please see below for the addresses for each location.


A food drive is an effective and impactful way to help us collect donations for the Pantry. If your business, organization, school or neighbourhood would like to organize a food drive to help the Pantry, please call us at (860) 674-8694 or fill out our contact form.
