Reminder: Especially Now, Wilton Food Pantry Needs Donations

During this time of intense need, please help keep the Wilton Food Pantry‘s shelves stocked. There is so much generosity in Wilton for the many challenges the community is facing. Making sure the Wilton Food Pantry can continue to provide for the families in town who need is an important gift of kindness.

Go through your own supplies (please check the expiration dates) or pack some additional goods on your next grocery run or supply order. Non-perishable food and household items should be dropped off at the temporary shed in front of the police station.

UPDATE:  For anyone who prefers to make a cash donation, checks can be made out to ‘Wilton Community Assistance Fund’ (501c3). They can be mailed, during the time that Comstock is closed to the Wilton Police Department, 240 Danbury Road, Wilton. If someone doesn’t want to put a donation in the mail, please email the director of Social Services Sarah Heath who can pick it up or arrange for a Wilton Police Officer can to pick it up from a mailbox.

Families needing supplies may take them from inside the tent on the side of Comstock.

  1. Good morning …. is there a way to make a cash donation to the food bank? Many of us seniors are not going to the store or indeed not going out and would like to help by sending a check. Thanks for the help and keep up the excellent job you are doing.

      Thanks again!

  2. I noticed that the Food Pantry bin in Stop n Shop was full to the brim on Saturday morning. Has the food been collected? Thanks.

    • Not sure Nancy but I will let the Kiwanis Club know. Thank you for pointing it out!

  3. Dear Heather,

    I’m a senior and don’t want to risk going out but I would like to donate money if I could to the Wilton Pantry. Is that possible? I tried to do it online but ended up donating to a pantry of the same name in a neighboring state. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And thank you for the wonderful work you do for our extraordinary town.
