 No family in Danbury CT should worry about where their next meal will come from, or whether they’ll have a coat when winter comes.

Jericho’s food pantry and clothing bank ensures that our neighbors are fed and clothed. Located in our Spring Street Neighborhood Center, this vital resource serves approximately 150 families in the nine-street, low-income neighbor that spreads out from Spring Street.

Families are served through a voucher system that provides them with the staples they need; in most cases, families visit the pantry once a month and the clothing bank every season. We’re open to any need, however, at any time.

Jericho is part of the Danbury Food Collaborative, but also welcomes donations of both food and clothing. Of greatest need are NON-EXPIRED donations of: canned tuna, dried or canned beans, peanut butter, canned soups, oatmeal, healthy cereal, brown/white rice, pasta, pasta sauces, macaroni & cheese.

We accept donations of non-perishable food and gently-used clothing at 44 Spring Street. Best hours:

Monday - 8:30 am to noon, 2:30 to 5:00 pm
Tuesday - 8:30 am to noon, 2:30 to 5:00 pm
Wednesday - 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Thursday - 8:30 am to noon, 2:30 to 5:00 pm
Friday - 8:30 am to 12:30 pm

(If those hours aren’t convenient, items may be brought to 13 Rose Street, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm weekdays)
