The Canton Food Pantry is sponsored by the Canton Area Helpline, a private, non-profit corporation.
Non-perishable food, personal care items, and household products may be left at the Bank of Canton, Canton Co-operative Bank, Canton Public Library, and Pratt Realtors. Donations of food, including perishable items, may be dropped off at the Pantry on Mondays only between 7-9am.
The Canton Food Pantry relies not only on food donations, but also on financial contributions from individuals, businesses, and organizations. Donated monies are used to purchase much needed perishable items such as eggs, cheese, fruit, potatoes, etc, as well as non-perishable items that are in high demand. We receive some USDA foods for free, and pantry is a member agency of the Boston Food Bank, thus we can purchase groceries there at enormous discounts. Last week we purchased 2,500 pounds of food for $94!
Donations are tax-deductible and may be mailed to:
