The mission of The Open Pantry is to relieve hunger in
our community. We aim to connect people to a variety of filling,
nutritious, and culturally-appropriate food as well as to other
community resources; to advocate on behalf of those in need locally,
statewide, and nationally; and to engage with others in building food
THOSE WE SERVE:
We provide short-term food assistance to those in need who reside in the Greater Lowell area. The reasons for need are numerous, but for many persons it is a choice between food and heat or medications; it may be a delayed or stolen check or it could be an abandoned person who has no other means. While the reasons are varied, the needs are real.
Over 1,500 people are served each month.
More than 1/3 of those we help are children.
Assistance is offered to individuals and families without any
discrimination based on race, creed, or country of origin.
