Feeding Hope and Nourishing Lives

Many members of our community still don’t have access to the essential resources they need. With us, you’ll get the assistance you need, as well as peace of mind during this time.

Empowering Families, Strengthening Community

Together, we’ve made a difference. Thanks to the generosity of donors and volunteers, the Plainville Community Food Pantry has been able to meet the increasing needs of our community.

Caring for Plainville Residents That Are in Need

We believe in the power of compassion and support. Since 1972, we’ve been dedicated to providing essential resources like food, energy assistance, clothing, crisis intervention, and referral services.

From food subsidies to donated clothing, you can select the groceries and clothing you and your family need with our “client-choice” format.

Crisis Intervention Services

The Crisis Intervention & Referral Services and Emergency Energy Assistance program can help with critical support during energy crises.

Specialty & Holiday Assistance

We offer school supply-filled backpacks at Back-to-School time and holiday food baskets during Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas to meet our clients’ needs.
