Helping Hands Food Pantry

The KWO started providing volunteers for The Helping Hands Food Pantry in the summer of 2020. The pantry was originally created for emergency assistance for those in need of food, but due to increased need, set weekly pickup hours have been added. The pantry also conducts three annual donation drives with holiday baskets given out to those in need.

You can call ahead to place an order or to let the pantry know that you are coming – call 860 663-1765 ext. 401 or email If you can’t make the designated hours, food pickup is still available by appointment – leave a phone message or email. Delivery is also available for those who are homebound. All information is confidential.

Food pickup by Killingworth residents:

  • Thursdays from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
  • Saturdays from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
