New Milford Food Bank
New Milford Social Services hosts a weekly food program where participants can choose fresh and nutritious food items as well as shelf-stable canned and boxed goods. Based on donations, we also have gluten-free, low sugar/low sodium, and organic items. The New Milford Food Bank also offers emergency food vouchers to Social Service households. Please contact our office for more details.
Food Bank hours are every Thursday from 9 a.m. until
4p.m. (2pm due to COVID) at 2 Pickett District Road. Please bring your own bags to collect your groceries.
For more information on how to register, please contact our office
Our Daily Bread Food Pantry at The New Milford United Methodist Church on 68 Danbury Road (on Rt. 7 opposite John Pettibone School) also distributes food from 2pm-6pm, every Thursday, helping those who cannot make our hours.
The Food Bank relies solely on donations of food and funds. Donations are accepted at our office, Monday through Thursday, 8:30a.m.-4p.m. and Friday, 8:30a.m.-2p.m. We have an outdoor tent reserved to receive food donations. Please contact us ahead of time regarding perishable donations.

New Milford Food Bank brochure
" Paper Bag Challenge" : Sometimes families request items of which we just don't have enough. We have listed 11 items on a flyer and are offering a challenge to fill one bag with at least 5 of these items. Will you take the challenge?
ATTENTION LOCAL BACKYARD GARDENERS! If you find your garden's bounty is a bit too much for your family's needs and you don't want to see it go to waste, think of us!
The New Milford Food Bank has registered with the AmpleHarvest.org Campaign (www.AmpleHarvest.org) - a nationwide program to enable local backyard gardeners to find a local food pantry to share their excess vegetables and fruits. Donations can be brought directly to the Food Bank on Thursday mornings, for immediate distribution.
