The Island Food Pantry’s mission is to address emergency needs of food for anyone on the island.

October – Mid April: The Pantry is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Mid April – October: Closed, but emergency food assistance is still available. Call the Pantry 508-693-4764 (508-693-GROG) and you will be given names and numbers of pantry volunteers who will meet you at the Pantry at a mutually convenient time.

When the Pantry is open, three bags of food are given whatever the size of the family; one bag of basic foods, one bag of fresh fruits and vegetables and one bag of items chosen by the visitor from a table of miscellaneous items. On the 1st and 2nd Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays of each month, a $20 food certificate is also distributed.

Persons can come the Pantry for their first visit without any qualifiers. If someone comes for 2 or more visits, they must bring a letter of reference from a clergy person, social agency or employer on a letterhead indicating this person/family needs our assistance. Then the person may come once every two weeks.
