Did you know March is National Nutrition Month?
 
During the winter months pantry families are stressed by high heating and transportation bills and often have to make difficult choices between paying bills and buying food. The Council Food Pantry is there to provide assistance thanks to the support of our community.
 
Your support throughout the year helps keep our shelves, refrigerators & freezers stocked with high-quality and nutritious choices. Food items and financial donations make it all possible.
 
Want an easier way to donate? Click here to access our online Amazon Food Pantry wishlist and your selected items will be sent directly to the Council office!


Scouting for Food
 
On Saturday, March 30th, Needham Scouts will partcipate in a town-wide food drive to collect non-perishable food items for the Council Food Pantry.
