Food Pantry

-A A +A

Pantry Information

Hours: The pantry is open the  First Monday of the Month or by appointment. (When the first Monday falls on a holiday, the pantry is generally held the following week--with some exceptions.)

Deliveries are made for qualifying seniors or disabled persons who do not have transportation or are physically unable to come to the pantry.

The Mendon Food Pantry is available to Mendon residents in need who receive fuel assistance, SNAP (food stamps) and/or aid to dependent children or to those who are disabled and/or unemployed. Referrals from area churches, social agencies, or concerned citizens regarding seniors and families in need will also be accepted. Client names shall be kept confidential.

Donations

Donations of non-perishable food products are accepted. Expiration dates and condition of packages will be checked for suitability. Items that have expired dates, dented or damaged cans or open packages will be discarded. Food donations may be dropped off during center hours, preferably 9am-3pm Monday-Friday or may be dropped off at the Mendon Post Office during business hours or after hours/weekends at the Senior Center drop box located in the rear of the parking lot adjacent to the garage.

Monetary donations (preferably checks) are accepted made payable to the Mendon Food Pantry and may be mailed to the Senior Center address. Such donations are used to replenish pantry stock and to purchase gift certificates for eligible recipients to local supermarkets. Please notify the center should you need a receipt for your donation.

The Mendon Food Pantry recently received a generous donation from a youth group. Coordinator MaryLou Siple and the youth volunteers organized the purchase and donation of school snacks, cereals and juices for children. Food Pantry Coordinator Carol Kotros and pantry volunteers were pleasantly overwhelmed by the donation.

Mia, age 6, received food pantry donations as gifts at her recent birthday party. With the help of her mom and sister, the trio stocked the gifts onto the shelves of the Mendon Food Pantry.

Boy Scout troops in Mendon worked to fill the shelves of our Food Pantry. Thanks to the troops!


The Clough School Kindergarten children made up two baskets of food for the Mendon Food Pantry to distribute to families in need for Thanksgiving.
