January 2021 – Happy New Year!
As we usher in the new year, we continue to feel grateful for the support of our partners, including Brown and Budnicks who donated hams to our clients for Christmas. Richardson Middle School also held an amazing food drive on our behalf. We thank them and all our supporters for your continued donations!

We will continue with our new opening process this month. Please see below for our detailed opening procedure, including a new addition limiting shoppers to 1 per group.

Because of COVID-19, you may find that drop-off sites around town are limited right now. If you have a donation to make, you may contact us directly at (978) 957-8600. You may also drop donations at the Food Pantry Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. We are located at 1934 Lakeview Avenue (behind Owen and Ollie’s). For drop off, you’ll see a green delivery door to the right of Define Fitness, go to the next door to the right, enter there. Once you enter, you can leave items just outside the first door on the left. Thank you for your continued support!

Opening Procedure

  1. We will allow three (3) shoppers in the pantry at one time.
  2. Because of capacity limits, only one (1) person per family may shop.
  3. Social distancing protocols and masks are required. Please social distance from each other at all times and from Kevin when checking-in.
  4. When checking-in, please bring your cellphone and know your cell phone number – it must be your cell number, not home number. We will take your cell phone number and call you when it’s your turn to shop.
  5. All clients must check-in and will remain in their vehicles until we call them to enter the pantry.
  6. We will not be accepting client names until 9 am, so we are asking clients not to arrive before 9 am so we do not have people forming a line. We want to be respectful of our neighboring businesses by not having people fill parking spaces earlier than 9 am.
  7. We will be asking clients to shop as quickly as possible. Board members will assist shoppers in making their selections to avoid too much contact with grocery items. 
  8. We ask for your patience as we continue to fine tune this new shopping experience. We are doing our best to help everyone safely.
