Ashland Community Center Food Pantry
The Ashland Food Pantry, located at the lower level of the Community Center on Union Street, provides fresh produce, groceries, and personal hygiene items to over a hundred visitors each month. In the month of September, the food pantry volunteers helped 56 Households totaling 154 individuals.
The Food Pantry volunteers carefully prepare grocery items for each household requesting assistance, and schedule an appointment time for the patron to receive their items.
The Human Services staff relies on the Greater Boston Food Bank and community members’ donations to stock the food pantry.
The staff accepts donations by collecting them from Shaws and Star Market’s designated bins, or in front of the food pantry in the donation bin outside the downstairs entrance of the Community Center. Community members seeking access to the food pantry may contact the Human Services staff by emailing, [email protected], or calling, 508-532-7949.
This local food pantry allows Ashland community members to easily access fresh foods and other items in a close proximity. It is a wonderful addition to the plethora of resources our town’s Human Services team offers.
Our Human Services team of staff members and volunteers provide additional services to support all townspeople. The team works together to provide support, case management, provide assessments and make referrals as needed, helps navigate the various health care, criminal justice, service provider programs, and offers assistance in accessing monetary or emotional resources. The team is comprised of a talent group of licensed clinical social workers.
These important resources fulfill our community’s goal to be safe and accessible for all.
