The Food Pantry at St. Michael’s
The Food Pantry at Saint Michael’s is an outreach program of this faith community in collaboration with other neighbors. We are neighbors who nurture each other. There is no proof of need.
We are moving. The Food Pantry at St. Michael’s is collaborating with the Food Pantry at the Bantam Annex to offer customized grocery deliveries to seniors in need. August 2023 will be our last offering of curbside pick up. We stock an “always open” shelf in the Community House. All are welcome.
Checks may be made payable to
“Saint Michael’s” with “Food Pantry” marked in the memo line.

Food donations to the Food Pantry at St. Michael’s are welcome and may be left in the back of the church or on a rear pew.
They will be used to stock the “always open” shelf.
Please contact the church office prior to large food deliveries.
Thank you for your continued support.
New volunteers are also most welcome.
We are entirely supported by neighbors –
individuals, organizations, merchants.
Neighbors Feeding Neighbors
The Food Pantry first began distributing free groceries in April of 2017 with the intention of helping those struggling to make it through the end of the month when funds typically run low. Since then, the response in both generosity of giving and amount of need has mushroomed. We serve approximately 60 households monthly, with up to 20 of these home deliveries to seniors who have no transportation.
Contact us through the Church Office via email at [email protected], by phone at 860-567-9465.
“I am over the age of 70 and I never dreamed of myself or any member of my family ever standing in line for food other than in a grocery store. Yet with my adopted daughter, who has had a lifelong struggle with disabling birth defects and illness…And… who is now struggling to live an independent life… Together we found ourselves in line at the food pantry. I sincerely thank you for the kindness and thoughtfulness we experienced here. The generosity was almost overwhelming. To see her spirits lifted was wonderful. Many thanks.”
