Food Pantry

The Center maintains a FREE food pantry for food-insecure community members and their families. We carry all kinds of pantry staples, including beans, pasta, tomato sauce, oatmeal, canned tuna and chicken, peanut butter, snacks and more! Those with dietary restrictions and other special needs can request additional items through our Case Management office.  

Community Closet

The Center maintains a FREE clothing closet for individuals of all gender identities and sizes. Whether you’re in need of seasonal clothing, clothes for a job interview or a special occasion, or just want a safe space to try on gender-affirming clothes, the community closet is for you! The community closet also includes a limited number of gender-affirming garments such as binders and wigs.

Host a Food Drive for NHPC

The New Haven Pride Center’s food pantry thrives on the generosity of the community who collects items for us throughout the year. Food drives come in many forms including on campus collections at schools and colleges, in community spaces, and at special events. To help you plan your food drive we have created a special packet that includes tips and tricks!
