Northborough Food Pantry in urgent need of donations

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Northborough – Due to a recent increased demand of families seeking help, the Northborough Food Pantry is now in urgent need of donations.

The organization is asking the public to consider making donations of non-perishable supplies so that it may keep the shelves stocked and thus ensure local families do not go hungry. The Pantry helps up to 75 families a year, although at times that number can rise up to nearly 100 families, the group's volunteers said.

The top 10 most needed items are: whole grain cereals, hot or cold; granola bars, whole grain crackers or other healthy snacks; rice or pasta; canned fruit in natural juice; peanut butter and jelly; canned stews and pasta meals (such as Spaghetti Os); shelf stable milk and juice boxes; mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup; soup; and personal care items such as toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, and lotion.

The Pantry, which is entirely run by volunteers, is open to residents of Northborough or persons with active membership in a church located in Northborough. It is located at the Northborough Town Hall, 63 Main St. Donations may be left there at anytime the Town Hall is open. For more information go to nfpantry.org.
