There isn't a link for this site. The Monson Open Pantry depends entirely on donations. Canned and dried good donations can be made at: St. Patrick's Church, the United Methodist Church, First Church, IGA Adams, Curtis Insurance Agency, the Monson Senior Center and the Monson Free Library.
Please check the expiration date on all foods as Open Pantry cannot distribute foods with expired dates, including canned goods.
Each month, Open Pantry provides milk, butter, eggs and meat. These items must be purchased, so monetary donations are also appreciated. These may be sent to: Monson Open Pantry, P.O. Box 566, Monson, Ma 01057, or given to the churches.
Individuals and families interested in applying for Open pantry Services should contact Candace Erickson at 596-2482 to receive an application.
Non-perishable food is always needed and welcomed in Open Pantry, Monson's emergency and monthly food share program. All donations serve your neighbors living in Monson. Donations of non-perishable staple food items are especially appreciated: tuna fish or canned chicken, soups, canned fruit, cereal, canned beans, dry lentils, rice, pasta, side dishes such as rice pilaf or ramen noodles, spaghetti sauce or canned tomatoes, healthy kids' snacks, etc., and low/no sugar and low/no salt options are encouraged.
The Unitarian Universalist Parish of Monson at 177 Main Street, across from the town gazebo and Subway, is proud to serve as a drop-off location for Open Pantry. Donations are received during any hours that we are open, including regular Sunday services, or please contact us to make special arrangements. The collection day is the first Wednesday following the third Sunday of every month, and so on every third Sunday we encourage people to give extra consideration those who may go hungry without their help.
