Free food pantries Hartford County Connecticut.

Hartford County in Connecticut is supported by a number of free food pantries, soup kitchens, food banks, churches, and charity organizations. They provide the low income, unemployed, and people who may be struggling with a number of assistance programs, including free food, groceries, hygiene supplies, emergency boxes of canned goods, holiday meals, and other aid. Find details on food banks and soup kitchens near you below, as well as a phone number to other programs at the bottom of the page.

Some of the free, emergency food pantries near you in Hartford Connecticut are mobile sites, meaning they operate in different parts of the town or city where they are located.

Children who are in school and normally really on free school breakfast or lunches also have options available to them during the summer and when they are out of school.
