Food pantries in New London.

Food pantries across New London County Connecticut provide assistance for residents and families in need of affordable or free groceries. Various churches, soup kitchens, charities, and other organizations provide food and nutritional support to the less fortunate in the community. Some of the pantries may even provide vouchers that can be used in locations such as thrift stores, farmers markets, or food banks for shopping for other items such as household goods or personnel hygiene.

Each location will have its own conditions that need to be met and operate under certain hours. For example, many food pantries will only provide perishable food, fruits, vegetables and items that is equivalent up to one bag of groceries per month. Some may expand their programs if a family is faced with an emergency situation.
