MARLBOROUGH – The Marlborough Community Cupboard (MCC), a direct service of the United Way of Tri-County, is once again offering neighbors in need bags full of groceries for an entire Thanksgiving meal this November.

For the thousands of individuals and families who seek assistance at MCC each month, knowing they can count on the Marlborough Community Cupboard to provide their families with a holiday turkey and all the fixings is a blessing.

“We’ve all felt the pinch at the grocery store over the last year,” said Barbara LaGrenade, Marlborough Community Cupboard director. “Food prices just keep going up, and individuals and families, living week-to-week or seniors on fixed incomes, cannot absorb these cost increases. That’s why we’re here. We can help supplement an individual or family’s grocery needs, giving them some breathing room, especially around the holidays.”

LaGrenade added, “By supporting families, we are doing more than providing a Thanksgiving meal. We are giving families the ability to come together, create memories, and build on traditions for years to come.”

The Thanksgiving food distribution will be held on Nov. 22 at the Marlborough Community Cupboard, Walker Building, 255 Main St.

All MCC food pantry clients have been instructed to pick up their groceries between 9 a.m. and noon. Anyone else in need of a turkey is asked to arrive between noon and 2 p.m. while supplies last. Turkeys will be distributed outside the food pantry on Rawlins Avenue.
