If you are a Plainville resident experiencing a crisis caused by health problems, loss of a loved one, low income or unemployment, you may be eligible to receive assistance through the Plainville Community Food Pantry. If you are not a Plainville resident, we encourage you to contact INFOLINE by dialing 211 for information about assistance programs in your town.


All individuals and families must complete an application and provide the documents on the Requirements list before the pantry can assist them. To apply, click on the forms above, print them out and complete them.


Any Plainville resident experiencing financial hardship is encouraged to apply to the PCFP for assistance. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis. We take into consideration the entire household’s income and subtract the necessary documented expenses (i.e. housing, utilities, medical bills and co-pays, child care). If you think you may be eligible for assistance, contact PCFP at (860)


Once you complete the application and gather the necessary paperwork, call the Pantry at (860)
747-1919 to make an appointment to drop them off. Appointments are mandatory. Our appointment schedule ensures client and applicant confidentiality.


Upon completion of the application process, the applicant's file will be reviewed and PCFP will evaluate it for eligibility. Clients will be notified of eligibility.
