Located in a building behind the First Congregational Church, 19 Gloucester Hill Road, off Church Road, New Gloucester’s community food pantry is open for town residents on the second and fourth Saturday of every month from 8-9:30 a.m. There’s a quick annual registration, and a quick check-in procedure.
Donations of non-perishable food (within expiration dates) especially needed for upcoming distributions include cold cereal, peanut butter, crackers, dry pasta, muffin or biscuit mixes, instant potatoes (or scalloped or gratin mixes), juice in plastic containers, canned pasta, canned spaghetti sauce, jam/jelly, canned fruit, Jell-O/pudding mixes. Laundry detergent, hand soap, toiletries, and paper goods are desired, too. Note that none of the current clients can use K-cup-packaged coffee.
Volunteers, especially folks available on weekdays, are always needed. Cash donations are appreciated. Call the church office at 926-3260 for more information.
