How did the pantry get started?

In 2006, a committee to form the Dracut Food Pantry was established by three Dracut churches ā€“ St. Francis Parish, St. Marguerite Dā€™Youville Parish and Christ Church United. Town representation was added, and the committee underwent several months of groundwork. The pantry opened at Beaver Brook Mills in October 2007 with just six families, but the demand grew quickly to over 100 families ā€“ or nearly 300 people of all ages.
