New Danbury Food Collaborative

A new Danbury Food Collaborative, which was spearheaded and led by United Way of Western Connecticut, has released A Guide to Accessing Food in Danbury.

The free guide lists locations of food pantries and congregate meal sites as well as opportunities for home delivered meals, including days and times of operation and qualifications necessary to receive these services.
the goal of the group, which includes 16 non-profit agencies, is to access food, evaluate quality of food and ensure sustainability of food for all members of the city.
The agencies provide food to more than 3,000 households and serve more than 50,000 meals a year.

A free downloadable copy of A Guide to Accessing Food in Danbury is available on UWWC’s website at

A Spanish version is also available at
