Description of Services
The Trumbull Food Pantry is located at The Center at Priscilla Place, 23 Priscilla Place, off of Huntington Turnpike near the Bunny Fountain and the Fairchild-Nichols Library.
The Food Pantry is made available to Trumbull Residents who meet the state's financial criteria for public assistance. Eligibility is determined by the Trumbull Department of Social Services, located at the same address. Trumbull residents in need of Pantry services should call (203) 452-5198 to set up an appointment. Potential clients must show proof of Trumbull residency, and income and expenses of household at the initial appointment. Appointments are necessary, and the standard pantry hours are 10:00 am to 1:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Pantry visits are limited to once a month.
The Trumbull Food Pantry is able to exist almost solely through donations from individuals and groups throughout the community. Trumbull residents are an exceptionally generous group; we receive many donations from them throughout the year. However, we can always use more. The number of families using the pantry has changed drastically over the last few years as more and more people struggle to feed themselves and their families.
The Trumbull community was overwhelming in response to our recent Holiday Appeal, and the Trumbull Food Pantry is filled to the brim! We thank you so much. As a result, we are not in need of any particular items at this time.
Please consider making a difference and donating to the food pantry. Whether you are an individual who just buys a few extra things while you are at the supermarket, or a community group that runs a large food drive, every little bit helps. If you wish to donate to the food pantry, we happily accept any non-perishable food item, paper products, such as paper towels and toilet paper, and toiletries. A list of most needed items can be obtained by calling our office or viewing the monthly announcement of needed items on our Town website's home page. Gift cards from local grocery stores are always very welcome.
Donations to the Food Pantry can be made directly at The Center at Priscilla Place between the hours of 9 :00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. If are large donation is being made, please contact our staff ahead of time @ 203-452-5198 so we may be available to assist you. In addition to the Food Pantry drop off site, there are 2 community locations- - donation boxes available at the Trumbull Library – Main Branch @ Quality St, and also at Trumbull Stop & Shop on Quality St.
Trumbull is an exceptional place to live, with many residents always willing to lend a hand. Let's keep that trend going by feeding families who are in need. Thank you.
