Serving Those Seeking Emergency Food Assistance

Growing Challenge

Hunger has become a growing challenge for more and more local families in these difficult economic times.

The Barre Food Pantry is our community's response. The Food Bank is a way of easing the stress on those of our neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet because of a job loss or other financial setback.

Our once-a-month distributions of grocery and other items are intended to bridge a gap for the more than 100 families who take advantage of our service.

You can help with your donations of food, financial support and of your time to help collect donations for the monthly distribution and for other transportation. 

The food bank makes deliveries to shut-ins only. A shut-in is as someone whom can not physically can’t get out of their home. We are seeking¬† volunteers who can help with deliveries.

Contact David Petrovick, Food Pantry Director, for more information and to learn about the many ways in which you can support the Food Bank.
