Our clients vary in age, size of family and circumstance. Some need the food pantry for a short period of time to help overcome a setback, others need it on an ongoing basis due to limited income. All are welcome, and all are treated with respect and privacy.
Food Pantry services are available to all low-income residents of the Town of Berlin and its employees. Each client household may receive food twice a month. The amount of food is dependent on family size and special needs. Below are the 2019 Financial Guidelines for eligibility.

What to Expect
All clients are greeted by a Food Pantry volunteer who will answer questions, explain our process, and provide you with a cart. You are then free to choose the foods you want from the large selection available. Volunteers will help you with bagging the groceries and getting the food to your car.
