About the Pantry
How to Donate to the Food Pantry...
Donations of unexpired non-perishable food items are always welcome. Regular needs consist of canned soups and stews, vegetables, pasta and sauce, macaroni and cheese, cereal, tuna, peanut butter/jelly, and snacks. We also accept paper goods and hygiene items. Donations can be dropped off most weekdays, but we would prefer if you call to arrange a drop-off time.
In addition to Faith Church there are several food donation drop-off locations conveniently placed throughout Melrose. Unexpired non-perishable items left at the following locations will be delivered directly to A Servant’s Heart Food Pantry:
Northern Bank & Trust (Franklin St)
Milano Senior Center (W. Foster St.)
St. Mary’s Parish* (Myrtle St.) After the weekend services.
We also welcome creative giving opportunities organized by individuals or local organizations, and occasionally there is need for one-time volunteer assistance for special events and food drives. If you are interested in supporting the food pantry, organizing a food drive, or would like to be contacted about potential volunteer opportunities, please call 781.662.8226.
