Food Access

The Healthy for Life Project is working to help all Norwalkers access healthy, delicious food. During the COVID pandemic, please see this guide in English and Spanish listing Norwalk food pantries and meal services. We work to keep this listing up to date as pantries and other organizations respond to increased need in our community, but please call ahead to organizations as hours and availability of services may change.

Contact Pamela Silva at with questions or if you have additions/corrections to the current flyer.

Community Food Assessment

The Healthy for Life Project worked with community partners and researchers at the Center for Social Impact at Fairfield University to analyze food insecurity and related factors in our community. The resulting Norwalk Community Food Report will guide our work in the future. Read the full report here.

Summer Meals

Even when school's out for summer, Norwalk kids can still get breakfast and lunch during the week at several sites around the city. Anyone age 18 years or younger can stop by one of these sites to get a meal. Check here in June for an updated list.
