Virtual Food Drive

P2P is providing more food than ever before, in part due to the economic toll the pandemic has had on so many of our neighbors. In the 12 months after the pandemic started, P2P distributed 71% more groceries than the previous 12 months. Help P2P get food where it needs to be, with a gift to our food program. Thank you. 

In-kind contributions can range from non-perishable food items for our three food pantries, new or gently used clothing for our clothing center, to baby gear and diapers. Please call 203-655-0048 with any questions you may have.
