The school year is winding down and some of you may be gearing up to head out of town this summer. Some will head to summer homes for the season. Others travel to favorite getaways for a week or two.

Meanwhile, residents who rely on the food pantry are likely to be in town for all or most of the summer.

During the school year, food is collected for the pantry through food drives and town events. 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 dropping off a donation at one of their collection centers.

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.
