Here at the Fairfield Community Center, we've been feeding folks for over 30 years. Whether you need food assistance or a meal to go, perhaps
your kids want to learn how to cook, or you want to join us
for a pizza night, we're here to provide good healthy food,
locally sourced whenever possible!
The Fairfield Food Shelf, located at 124 School Street in East Fairfield is open every Tuesday from 3-5 p.m., and every 2nd Friday of the month from 10-Noon for produce and bread only.
Please enter through the side door where a volunteer will take your information, and give you instructions. Only one person at a time is allowed in the Food Shelf. Chairs are located outside the door for your convenience.
Masks are required for anyone not fully vaccinated. If you cannot be masked, you'll receive a pre-made box.
If you have questions, or have items you'd like to donate to the Food Shelf, please don’t hesitate to call us at 802-827-3130.
Ready-To-Heat Meals are distributed on Tuesdays from 1:30-3 p.m., and include a main course, milk, dessert, and fruit. Pick-up is at the Community Center's west side door.
To sign up for Ready-To-Heat Meals, please call (802) 827-3130 and leave a message for Kathy. In your message, included the names and phone numbers for those seeking meals. Someone will contact you to provide more information.
Meals are free, but donations are always appreciated. Delivery is available upon request.
Tuesday Community Lunches are on hold until the Covid coast is clear, and will resume as soon as we possibly can. Stay safe everyone!
Our Community Garden is always growing and changing, helping to supply the Food Shelf and meal programs with fresh veggies throughout the summer and fall. During camp, the garden doubles as an outdoor classroom - teaching kids to plant, water, weed and harvest - essential lifeskills to last a lifetime!
If you have an interest in gardening, and a little time in the summer, please give Julie a call or just stop by. Pull a few weeds, eat an apple right off the tree, take home a zucchini, or just sit down for half an hour and smell the flowers. It's a lovely place!
