The Cheshire Food Pantry is a community organization that provides food in situations for all eligible individuals and families in need, regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, or disability. Free-will donations come from the general Cheshire community.
We accomplish equitable distribution through the generous giving of time and labor by an organized team of compassionate volunteers.

We can accept donations 24/7 through our "Public Donation/Volunteer" Entrance. The door is clearly labeled. A small refrigerator and shelving is available. Note our pantry is open MWF 9-12 and T-TH 3-6 if you need a donation receipt. We are closed on Saturday and Sunday.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
