PANTRY TO CLOSE TEMPORARILY

After much thought, and with heavy hearts, we have decided to close the Pantry temporarily due to the challenge of keeping our clients, volunteers and staff safe during the COVID-19 crisis.  Our last open pantry session will be Friday, April 3rd, from 9:45am to 12:30pm.

We are grateful to our volunteers who worked tirelessly to help the staff transform the Pantry to a drive-thru operation which has worked well during the past few weeks.  Without their hard work we would have needed to close even sooner.  The health and safety of our clients is core to our mission, and the health and safety of our volunteers and staff is essential to achieving our mission.  We know our clients depend on us to make ends meet and understand that many need us even more in the current circumstances.  This was not an easy decision but it was a necessary one.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and will reopen as soon as we feel we can do so safely.

If you are in need of resources, please call Mass-211.  For Client Services, please call 978-772-4627, x312 or send an email to: clientservices@loavesfishespantry.org

2020 Annual Appeal

“When my son David told me he was hungry, it broke my heart.”

                  Your support gives hope to our neighbors in need.

Daniel is a Veteran, a single dad and a dedicated and loving father.  He works on the line at a local manufacturing company.

“I’ve always been a hard worker and never pictured myself going to a food pantry, but rent, utility bills and insurance have all increased so much and money for groceries has been limited.  I’ve been doing the best I can but we eat a lot of noodles, soup and peanut butter sandwiches.  When my son David told me he was hungry, it broke my heart.  I saw a brochure about the Pantry at the grocery store and knew what I needed to do.  I am so thankful for Loaves & Fishes, they’ve given me food and hope!”
                                    Sincerely, Daniel

Several local businesses have pledged $11,750 in matching funds.  Your gift will be doubled if you donate by April 30th!

 THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

WALK…DONATE…SPONSOR… to help end hunger locally!
