The Food Pantry Committee works to develop programs to collect the items needed by the food pantry. The Holliston Pantry Shelf was started by four Holliston residents in 1993 and it does not receive or seek any federal or state assistance, but relies solely on the generosity of its donors.
Easter Basket Success! Thanks to all of you who graciously offered to make Easter Baskets for children who benefit from the Food Pantry. Together we made 63 baskets!
Later this month will be the Neighborhood Leaders program. (It was rescheduled from the fall.) I’d love to have more volunteers help get the Pantry what they need. As a Neighborhood Leader, you’ll be the contact person on your street/in your neighborhood to collect a specific item in need. You will be provided with a letter that can be distributed to your neighbors, explaining the drive. During a given week, your neighbors will drop off the item at your house—you can leave a box outside for collections. Then I will come to your house to pick up what you collected. This is an easy way to help—please call or email me today to sign up!
Item of the month: peanut butter
Please consider dropping peanut butter at the Food Pantry at your convenience. Just post a note on it that says “from HNC member”. There is a drop box at the door. The Food Pantry is located at 23 Water St. Thanks!Please contact me if you would like to learn more about how you can help the Holliston Food Pantry.
