Feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless in the Danbury CT area since 1982

We thank the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut for their generous donation of a Traulsen commercial freezer.   This freezer is needed to store prepared meals to feed 60 people at the Pacific House shelter.

If you want to be scheduled to donate sandwiches, please send an email to

We also need donations of fresh fruit, snacks and cookies  for grab and go bags.

We are also accepting donations of non perishable food, toiletries and other items.   For more details, see our wish list.
Donation drop off time  -- 1:30pm to 2:30pm daily

Our shelter is not open at the present time -- if you are in need of shelter please call 211.   At the current time the only emergency shelter in Danbury is at the Super 8 motel.
