Some Local Food Pantry Facts
- Many local pantries offer fresh produce and healthy meal alternatives to their clients.
- A monetary donation goes much farther because many pantries have partnerships with food suppliers such as grocery stores and organizations like the Greater Boston Food Bank.
- Our local food pantries have seen steady increases in clients and expect to serve more families throughout this holiday season.
- Food pantries often have to throw out more than a third of the food donated, usually due to expired and previously opened items.
