Serving Maynard since 1992

The purpose of the Maynard Food Pantry is to provide food assistance to any individual or family in need. The Maynard Food Pantry serves residents of Maynard, Acton, Stow and Sudbury.  Maynard Shoppers are welcome to shop two times/month and out-of-town residents are welcome to shop one time monthly.  The Maynard Food Pantry also provides Thanksgiving and Holiday dinner baskets for our shoppers.

The Maynard Food Pantry will once again be providing Thanksgiving dinner baskets to families in need within our community this holiday season.

In the past, families, organizations, groups, and companies have generously donated dinner baskets consisting of a frozen turkey or canned ham together with a combination of bagged potatoes, fresh squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, canned or fresh vegetables, apples, oranges, fruit juice, packaged rolls, and packaged desserts. Thinking about a family of 6 when putting together the basket is a good guide.

We would greatly appreciate similar donations this year so that the Maynard Food Pantry can provide these wonderful gifts to our client families.  In previous years, we have been able to provide approximately 85-90 dinner baskets to local families in need.

If you would like to donate a Thanksgiving dinner basket or a quantity of one of the above-referenced items, please contact Mary Brannelly by email at mjtbrannelly@comcast.net  no later than Sunday, November 13, 2022 for drop-off instructions.  Also, feel free to send along a note if you need additional information.
The Maynard Food Pantry is always appreciative of cash donations that are used to purchase food to keep the Food Pantry stocked, especially at this time of the year when we consistently see an increase in the number of families in need of our services.  Checks can be made payable to the “Maynard Food Pantry” and may be sent c/o PO Box 55, Maynard, MA 01754.  Thank you!
