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. All are welcome. We are neighbors who nurture each other. We are on a first name basis only, respecting privacy. There is no proof of need.
The Food Pantry at St. Michael’s is offering curbside pick up the third Saturday of the month from 10:30 am – 11:30 am. Prepackaged bags of grocery staples will be distributed. There is also an “always open” shelf in the Community House. All are welcome.
“The staples we routinely pass out can be easily ordered in bulk.
Paying for them is the Pantry’s main challenge.”
Please consider supporting us financially.
Checks may be made payable to
“Saint Michael’s” with “Food Pantry” marked in the memo line.

They will be used as needed for both the “always open” shelf and for the monthly offering.

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.
Packaged holiday store bought cookies can be left on the side pew in the back of church. Thank you.

“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.”
