What Does the Food Pantry Need?
Canned goods aren't the only thing the Community Cupboard needs to keeps its shelves stocked.
When one area resident went to gather together goods to donate to the Community Cupboard in Marlborough at 255 Main Street, they were curious what items are needed right now.
Some items are at a critical need at the food pantry that serves to bolster local resident's cupboards.
Among those are:
- Canned Low Sodium Beef Stew (Very High Need)
- Low Sodium Canned Stews, Vegetables and Fruits
- Canned Corn
- Jelly and Jams
- Canned Spaghettios, Ravioli and Beefaroni
- Canned Fruit Cocktail
- Crackers (Any Variety)
These are some of the needed items, but the Community Cupboard provides a rounded package to their clients, as shown in the video along with this story. In addition to dry and canned goods, the pantry distributes meat, bread, vegetables and fruit.
The food is available once a month to Marlborough residents. People must provide proof of residency and proof of income with the United Way that operates the food pantry.
The pantry of open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, people may visit the pantry's website or call 508-481-4080.
