COVID-19 updates for Food Bank Recipients and Donors below. Please read carefully as there are important changes.

Food Bank Requests - COVID-19 Update

Due to the special circumstances of COVID-19, the RCC building is closed to the public and we are working with very limited staff.  At this time, we are only able to accommodate residents that have pre-registered to use the Food Bank.  Exceptions can be made for anyone who has lost their job due to COVID-19 on a case-by-case basis. For everyone’s safety, we are no longer taking specific food requests.  Instead, grocery store gift cards will be provided based on the household size we have on file.  We are not able to modify household sizes at this time.

If you are in need of food...

Please call (860) 652-4655 and leave a message stating your name, phone number, address, and the number of people in your household. You may also use the form below, but please only complete the name, address, and phone number fields.
  • Requests must be made by noon on Tuesdays for pickup on Wednesdays between 10:00 am and 12:30 pm.

Pick Up Instructions - Stay in your vehicle!

Pick up will be at the south door of the Community Center, closer to the park and Boathouse. Please call us at 860-815-2190 upon arrival, stay in your vehicle, and pop your trunk. This practice is in place for social distancing purposes. For any special circumstances, please call a social worker at 860-652-7638. Thank you, and stay healthy!

Food Bank DONATIONS- COVID-19 Update

During this challenging time, many members of our community are in need of emergency food and other daily essentials such as utilities and shelter.  The Glastonbury Gives program encompasses the food bank, fuel bank, and other town assistance programs, and the current pandemic circumstances have led to an increased demand for these programs. Glastonbury Social Services is currently seeking MONETARY DONATIONS to the Glastonbury Gives program, and all funds will be allocated to the Food Bank, Fuel Bank, and other assistance programs based on real-time community need.  Monetary donations are requested in lieu of non-perishable food items and other contributions to minimize social contact.  Fiscal donations provide the opportunity to purchase grocery gift cards and fund the fuel bank and other programs that support the essential needs of eligible community members.
