Don’t forget the Food Pantry this summer

A lot of Southborough residents seem to disappear in the summer months. Some head to summer homes for the season. Others travel to favorite getaways.

The residents who rely on the food pantry are unlikely to do either. For them, this can be a difficult time.

During the school year food is collected for the pantry through food drives (like Spirit Days) and special town events that  encourage donations.

In the summer, many forget about this resource that is so important to those who need it.

So, before you head off on vacations or get wrapped up in your summer plans, consider stopping off at a donation center.

The Southborough Food Pantry’s website can help you find the best dropoff site for you. Plus, they keep an updated list of most-needed items.
