Food Pantry Partnerships
We love our partners!
We have wonderful community partners
who help us do what we do!
The Food Pantry at United Parish is thrilled to welcome our first delivery from Dignity Matters, a non-profit organization that provides no-cost feminine hygiene products, bras and underwear to homeless and disadvantaged women and girls. Did you know that Massachusetts SNAP benefits do not cover these very necessary and expensive products?!! We are so proud and grateful to be partnered with this amazing organization! 33 women and girls that currently use our pantry will benefit from this very first distribution. THANK YOU SO MUCH Dignity Matters, and to our dedicated liaison, Joy!!
The Soul Fuel Café and The Food Pantry make a great partnership team! In addition to Coins for Coffee, they also provide freshly brewed coffee on our holiday food pantry dates for everyone to enjoy, along with being a relaxing spot for patrons to wait their turn to be called at the food pantry.
Our partnership with an independent food pantry in Hudson, sharing overstocked inventory to eliminate food waste (items expiring on shelves), or specialty items not normally found in food pantries.
The Cat Sanctuary, Ashland, MA is now donating cat food & litter to our Pet Pantry!
Fiske & Main, Upton, MA. The owners of this delicious wine and cheese shop faithfully donate leftover breads to our pantry each week.
Big thanks to local students Addie and Taylor. These two young community members ran a hugely successful food drive at the Memorial School Trunk or Treat event in October. We can't thank them enough and praise their efforts to support our pantry!
