4 Ways You Can Help Your Local Food Pantry

Food pantries like The Salem Pantry rely on our local communities to support us in many ways. Contributing to your local food pantry is a great way to contribute to improving your community.

  1. Monetary Donations
    Monetary donations are the best way to support organizations like The Salem Pantry. Make a monetary donation if you wish to make the most significant impact. We understand that not everyone can make big charitable donations. Any amount you donate will help; a $75 donation to The Salem Pantry will provide a family of four with groceries for a week!
  2. Volunteer
    Like most non-profit organizations, The Salem Pantry relies on volunteers for various tasks and responsibilities. Our volunteers are crucial to our ability to serve so many community members. You can volunteer with The Salem Pantry as an individual or with a group.
  3. Get Others Involved!
    You can make an even more significant impact on your community with the more people you include in your efforts. Are you looking to donate? Many companies match charitable donations made by their employees. Check with your employer before you donate. You can also ask friends and family members to join you, whether it is donating or volunteering.
  4. Host a Food Drive
    Food drives are a great way to provide food pantries with items they may not be able to acquire. Contact us at The Salem Pantry for information on hosting a food drive, including our “Guide to Hosting a Food Drive,” which includes helpful tips and a list of items we currently need.

No matter how you choose to help, you will be joining us in our mission to ensure the essential right to convenient and reliable access to healthy food in Salem and on the North Shore.

We thank you in advance!
