We offer a “client choice” food pantry. Clients select your own food from a healthy array of protein, fruits, vegetables, grains, cereal, and milk. We often have a selection of fresh pastries and seasonal items. We aim to provide healthy food that accommodates cultural, religious, personal and dietary preferences, and helps you make ends meet.
Neighbor to Neighbor offers three types of food assistance:
Supplemental Food: Greenwich residents who meet our 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 and includes a selection of dry and canned goods, fresh produce, frozen meat, milk and whole wheat bread. Our food pantry is designed like a small grocery store, allowing clients to select their own food.
Summer Supplement: If you receive free or reduced price meals during the school year, you may be eligible to take part in Neighbor to Neighbor’s Summer Supplement Program for Greenwich residents. We provide food at no cost to make five lunches per week for each school-aged child in a family. The Summer Supplement is provided in addition to a family’s weekly Supplemental Food.
All clients must be qualified and referred by one of our referring agencies. Approved referring agencies include the Greenwich Department of Social Services, Greenwich public schools, Family Centers Head Start Nursery School, Family Centers RITE program, and Pathways.

Neighbor to Neighbor offers in-season clothing, hats, mittens, boots, diapers, linens, books, dishes and small household items free of charge to eligible residents of Greenwich, Stamford and Port Chester (NY). Everything distributed in our clothing room is donated by individuals, schools, civic and religious groups, and corporations.
