Neighbor to Neighbor operates a “client choice” food pantry, designed to resemble a small grocery store. Clients select their own food from a healthy array of protein, fruits, vegetables, grains, cereals, eggs, and milk. There is often a selection of fresh pastries and seasonal items too. Neighbor to Neighbor aims to provide healthy food that accommodates cultural, religious, personal, and dietary preferences. The Food Pantry accommodates vegetarian and diabetic diets and will do the best to accommodate kosher or gluten-free diets, as requested.
Neighbor to Neighbor offers three types of food assistance:
Supplemental Food Program: Greenwich residents who meet income guidelines may receive three days’ worth of food for each member of the family each week at no cost. The amount of food each family receives is based on the size of the family.
Summer Supplement Program: School-aged students whose families qualify for the Supplemental Food Program may receive additional breakfast and lunch foods during the summer months.
Emergency Food Program: One-time emergency food is available to anyone in immediate need.
*Neighbor to Neighbor may provide products with peanuts, tree nuts, soy, milk, eggs, and wheat. While we take steps to minimize the risk, since food products are packed, we cannot guarantee that any of our products are safe to consume for people with food allergies.
Clothing & Essentials Assistance
Clothing & Essentials Program: Greenwich residents who meet income guideline may visit the Clothing and Essentials Room once a month. Appointments are assigned for visits. The Clothing and Essentials Room provides brand new personal care products, household cleaning products, feminine hygiene products, brand new socks and undies, and one winter blanket per family.
