The government shutdown continues with no end in sight, frigid temperatures permeate the region and federal employees are promised they will get paid, eventually. You can’t eat eventually. You can’t care for your child, family or self eventually.

For all federal employees and contractors, please know that Operation Hope’s Food Pantry doors are open for you. Our Food Pantry stocks diapers and pet food, in addition to fresh produce, refrigerated and frozen items, shelf stable foods and personal care items. The Pantry is located at 636 Old Post Road, Fairfield, and hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 10am-12pm and Thursday, 4pm-6pm. Simply show your federal ID (or proof that your spouse is a federal employee/contractor) and we’ll help you get what you need.

And if you’d like to donate to the Pantry and help our neighbors in need, please click here for our January wish list of most needed items and drop off info. Thank you.
