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 800 families shop at the food pantry.  A family of four can receive three days of groceries (a $125 value) twice per month.  Families pick from a great selection of nutritious foods which include fresh fruits and vegetables, all of which helps to stretch strained monthly budgets.  Our volunteer and outreach staff helps individuals to determine if they qualify for other social service programs. They also help 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.

The Amazing Grace Food Pantry is open to shoppers on

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Noon to 4 PM.

Where Does the Food Come From?

  • 40% of the food comes from our own unique Families Feeding Families 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.

  • 20% of all of the food at Amazing Grace is provided by greater Middletown community through individual donations and food drives

  • 40% of the food is purchased by St. Vincent de Paul, at 16 cents/pound from Connecticut Foodshare.
