The Maynard Food Pantry is so grateful to the individuals, families, schools, community groups, organizations and businesses who helped to make the holidays nice for local families!  Thanks to your support at Thanksgiving, we were able to provide 95 dinner baskets and the same again during Christmas week.  Additionally, we were able to provide gifts to 23 local families (67 children) because of your incredible generosity.

I also want to thank Jennifer Picorelli for encouraging the Maynard Food Pantry, Maynard Backpack Program and Open Table Maynard to participate in the Holiday Parade again for the 3rd consecutive year!  Thank you to everyone who brought food donations to the Parade to benefit these three organizations!  Thank you to Will Doyle, owner of the Sanctuary, for always allowing us to organize the food in his space!

Thanks to all those who provide financial and food support to both the Maynard Food Pantry and Backpack Program throughout the year!

I am especially grateful for the amazing volunteers who continue to do the work to keep the Maynard Food Pantry open and able to assist local families throughout the year.  None of this would be possible without their dedication and commitment!

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy 2024!
