New Program Launched at Kroger

The Kroger Company, one of the best known grocery stores across America has launched a new program called Zero Hunger | Zero Waste. This is “Kroger’s bold new plan to end hunger in our communities and to eliminate waste across our company by 2025” and the Fairfield Food Pantry is proud to become a part of this program.

Our Pantry has been selected to become one of the many recipients of Kroger’s new and bold program. While the program is just being launched, this will certainly provide immediate benefit to our local community.

Pantry representatives will pick up items from the Deli, Bakery, Produce, and Meat departments every Monday, Tuesdays and Thursday at 8am. These items will be made available to our patrons immediately upon arrival back to the Pantry. Be sure to check out this great program!

An Amazing Addition to the Pantry!

This was a great day at the Pantry. After months of working to get the best freezer at the best price, the new walk-in freezer was installed. Now the Fairfield Food Pantry can take advantage of good prices on meat and other frozen foods at great prices to better serve our community. Thanks to all who made this happen.

Food Pantry - On The Move!

Following an accident that severely damaged the home of the Fairfield Food Pantry, we are excited to announce that we have found a new home. This new facility, located at 78 Donald Drive, is less than 1/2 mile from the Magie Avenue facility, provides enough space to triple the amount of supplies we can maintain on-site, provides better parking for its’ clients, and provides room for future expansion. This is definitely a win-win for all involved! We are grateful the driver of the Toyota Camry did not have any serious injuries.
