Urgent Food Pantry Needs

Council of Social Concern Logo
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!
