Our Programs

Food Assistance

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 residents of Stamford and Port Chester who meet income guidelines, at the request of a social worker. 

*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

*Please note the Clothing & Essentials Room is closed due to the COVID-19.

Neighbor to Neighbor offers new and gently-used seasonal clothing and small household items free of charge to eligible residents of Greenwich, Stamford, and Port Chester (NY). Clients may visit the Clothing & Essentials Room by appointment every other month, up to six times per year.

Make a Referral

All clients must be referred by an approved Referring Agency.  Prior to making a referral, the Referring Agency is asked to determine a family’s eligibility to receive assistance by verifying their income and town of residence. Approved Referring Agencies may contact Jane Naveros, Client Coordinator at 203-622-9208 to refer a client.

If you are interested in becoming a Referring Agency, please review the Referring Agency Policy & Agreement.

To become an approved Referring Agency, please contact Margaret Goldberg, Executive Director at 203-622-9208 or mtgoldberg@ntngreenwich.org.
