In 2013, United Way formed the Danbury Food Collaborative (DFC), bringing together more than 20 pantries, soup kitchens and nonprofits to work collaboratively to have an even greater impact on community hunger and food insecurity among struggling, hard-working families of greater Danbury. The mission of the DFC is to improve access to food, quality of food and sustainability of food for all members of our city.
Published by the DFC, A Guide to Accessing Food in Danbury lists available food pantries, congregate meals sites and opportunities for home delivered meals in Danbury, including days and times of operation and qualifications necessary to receive these services. The guide is also available in Spanish.
