The Plymouth Community Food Pantry reduces food insecurity by providing healthy and nutritious food, wellness programs, and community referrals to those in need. To become a client of the Pantry you may call (860) 584-1750 or email and leave a message. Someone will call to set up an appointment to register you under the process outlined as follows:

Step 1 All applicants will verbally attest that they:

a. are Connecticut residents

b. meet the financial eligibility based on The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). Click on financial eligibility to see if you qualify.

  • If the criteria for step one is met, the applicant can move on to Step 2.
  • If the criteria for step 1a is met but not 1b, applicant may receive non-TEFAP food at the director’s discretion if qualified under step 3.
  • If neither criterion for step 1 is met the applicant will not be registered.

Step 2 Are you a resident of Plymouth, Terryville, or Pequabuck?

  • YES    Proceed to step 3.                                                     
  • NO    Applicant is eligible for TEFAP food only. 

The TEFAP food will be prepacked and ready to go.  The client can still take advantage of Health√Check if they wish.  From time to time the pantry may have an overabundance of donated items and it will be at the discretion of the director to offer that item to a TEFAP client. See the current list of TEFAP items for this week.
