Food Pantry Fill-Up
Our Food Pantry Needs Our Help!
Donations are ALWAYS needed.
Any non-perishable items are welcome.
Not sure what to donate? Check out this monthly list of ideas!
The Food Pantry Fill-Up is helping to keep our food pantry stocked and our community aware that we have neighbors that need assistance. Look for the pink donations bins located around Hopkinton where YOU can help those in need. You can find these donation bins at the three schools, Hopkinton Town Library by the Community Room, Colonial Village, Cracker Barrel and several Hopkinton churches.
In addition to non-perishable food, the pantry also benefits from non-food items that are essential for good health and hygiene and are typically expensive for some to purchase. Please consider donating items such as laundry detergent, dish soap and other household cleaning and hygiene supplies.
The Hopkinton Food Pantry serves approximately 50 households on a regular basis and as many as 70-80 during the holidays. Those who need it are able to come to the Food Pantry, located in the lower level of the Slusser Center, once a week, to pick up staple items. Deliveries are made weekly to those who are unable to travel. If you're in need of assistance, you can contact the Food Pantry at this number, 746-8244. The Food Pantry can also provide information for additional services when/if needed.
