food free of charge. Amazing Grace is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays

invited to shop once a month and receive approximately three days worth of
groceries. Families choose the food items they would like that are available at
the time. Family member size determines the quantity of food allotted at each
visit. Where Does the Food Come From?
45% of the food comes
from our own unique Families Feeding Families program. Families Feeding Families allows churches,
businesses, and families to commit to Amazing Grace to provide specific food
items once each month, throughout the year.
20% of all of the food
at Amazing Grace is provided by greater Middletown community, organized food
drives including the annual U.S. Post Office food drive, and large corporate
and school food drives.
35% of the food is
purchased through financial contributions, by St. Vincent de Paul, at .16 per
pound from The Connecticut Food Bank and local retail / discount stores.
