The Stow Food Pantry has been serving the town of Stow and the surrounding towns of Acton, Bolton, Lancaster, Maynard and Boxboro for over 19 years. Our Pantry is held at the First Parish Church, twice a month and we provide enough food to help a family to eat for one week. We are privately funded and rely on the generosity of the communities we serve. We are a fully volunteer organization; with leadership from a Board of Directors.  Since our opening in 1990, the Stow Food Pantry has helped over 800 families.

How else to help?

Are you looking for a way that you and your family can help our community?
We run our twice monthly pantry from the basement of the First Parish Church here in Stow, Massachuetts. We need help on Thursday evenings at the church to sort and stock the donations we receive from the community.  Stop by the First Parish Church on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at 4:45 and we will put you to work! If you can read a label you can help!
Questions? Can't do Thursdays? We'll find something for you!
