The Woburn Council of Social Concern Food Pantry is desperately low on food, as we go back to school and enter the colder months the need for families in Woburn becomes more pronounced. If you can help in any way they would appreciate it.
 
These are a few of the items that they are completely out of:
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Dried Beans
  • Cake Mixes & Brownie Mixes
  • Tuna
They are running very low on:
  • Soups, Both Condensed and Ready to Serve
  • Cereal
Thank you so much for all your help! It is very much appreciated!

The Council of Social Concern's Food Pantry  is in dire need of non-perishable food items.This timeThe of the year is usually difficult to keep the Food Pantry shelves full.  

 

In the past, the residents of Woburn and Winchester have helped Social Concern to serve "neighbors in need" by donating food items to the Food Pantry. Once again, Social Concern is asking residents of both Woburn and Winchester to help stock the shelves. With a little help from everyone, they will be able to fill their shelves and ensure that individuals and families have nutritious foods available to them.

The summer months present a special challenge for many of the families served by the Council of Social Concern’s Food Pantry. Children who receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch at school are now home for three meals a day, placing an extra financial burden on those who are already struggling to put food on the table. Your donation now will help to ensure that local children will have enough nutritious food to eat during the summer months. All non-perishable food within date will be accepted.

All donations can be dropped off at the CSC Food Pantry at 2 Merrimack Street in Woburn, Mondays-Fridays between 9:00-5:00 p.m.  If you wish to make a monetary donation, please make your check out to Council of Social Concern Food Pantry. For more information about donations please click here
