How The Amazing Grace Food Pantry Works

Many of our working neighbors struggle to keep their lights on while putting food on the table.  Each month over 900 families shop at the food pantry.  A family of four can receive 3 days of groceries twice per month (a $200 value).  Families pick from a great selection of nutritious foods which include fresh fruits and vegetables, all of which helps to stretch strained monthly budgets.  Catholic Charities helps individuals to determine if they qualify for other social service programs, helping guests to fill out all necessary applications for programs such as SNAP (formerly food stamps), energy assistance, WIC, school meals, Husky Part A, Part B, State Administered General Assistance (SAGA), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Aid to the Blind or Disabled and Social Security Supplemental.

About Amazing Grace

Where Does the Food Come From?

  • Food comes from our own unique S.O.S (Sponsor Our Shelves) program. This program is a commitment from churches, businesses, families or individuals to donate a specific quantity of a food item every month for a year.

  • Food at Amazing Grace is provided by greater Middletown community through individual donations and food drives

  • Food is purchased by St. Vincent de Paul from Connecticut Foodshare.
