Free Little Pantry At Trinity: Give What You Can, Take What You Need



Text Size

The Little Pantry was the dream of a parishioner in Trinity Episcopal Church in Newtown.

It was planned and constructed by a small team who saw a need and is concerned with food insecurity in our country. The Little Pantry is a small structure to collect and distribute shelf-stable and non-perishable food. Give what you can, Take what you need.

A blessing and dedication by Reverend Andrea Wyatt and members of the parish was held on Sunday, October 22.

The entire community is now invited to donate non-perishable food items to help the problem of food insecurity in the area.

Anyone is welcome to give or receive food and the doors are open all day, every day.

The structure is in the parking lot of Trinity Episcopal Church, with easiest access via the driveway at 12 Church Hill Road (the driveway shared with Newtown Hook & Ladder). The Little Pantry is in the median closest to the playground.

There is easy access to the Little Pantry either by car or on foot. Stop by day or night any day of the week. There is always a need for canned meals, protein, rice and paper products. The list of most-needed items is posted at trinitynewtownct.org/serve-our-community.html

The Little Pantry is supported by the Mission and Outreach Commission of Trinity Church. The group of dedicated volunteers inventory, stock and help supply the Little Pantry.

There are ongoing partnerships with other food banks in the area.

The Little Pantry welcomes inquiries and donations of food and cash.
