Midwest Food Bank New England


DONATE button

In December 2020, Midwest Food Bank announced the opening of a 12th location, in Connecticut (full story here). The New England area will be served from this division. 

A 55,000 sq.ft. warehouse facility was leased in Manchester, CT. The first phase of renovations is underway and we anticipate initial food distribution to begin in November. Phase 2 of our renovations including offices, conference room, kitchen, and volunteer/community space will begin when additional funds are raised.

Two staff members have been hired, Jan Young, Executive Director, and Brent Carl, Operations Manager. A core team of volunteers are being assembled. Please contact Jan Young to learn about open positions.  Additional volunteer opportunities will be announced on our Facebook group (sign up here) and in our bi-monthly email newsletter (sign up here).

Getting started requires a lot of equipment, large and small. Click here to see a list of items we need. If you, your business, church, or civic group is interested in supplying any of these items, please contact Jan Young.

Any non-profit in CT and beyond is able to pre-register to drive to our location and pick up food on a scheduled basis.  We are actively adding interested agencies to our waiting list. This is an exciting time and we will be updating this page as new developments happen. For more information, stories, and photos, take a look at our blog posts.


Come to MFB New England to volunteer.  Our volunteers are the life-blood of our organization - one of our key strengths. For individuals, families, or small groups, you can browse the list of opportunities below.
