Mission

Our Mission


The mission of the Dracut Food Pantry is to provide short and long-term food assistance to Dracut residents who are struggling to put food on the table in this difficult economy.  We will also serve anyone referred to the pantry by Dracut clergy, the clerk’s office or other town organization.

The pantry offers help in other ways when needed, including informing clients of other available resources and agencies.

The primary goal of our organization is to provide a variety non-perishable food on a monthly or as-needed basis.  We are typically open on the fourth Saturday, a time when state or federal support checks typically run low.

The amount of food that we offer each month is based on our donations from the community at that time.

Clients shop with a supportive volunteer for the items they need, thereby eliminating waste.  The environment is friendly, clean and comfortable, and client information is kept strictly confidential.
