Pantries in Need

 In Events

Support our local food pantries.

 THANK YOU! The community’s generous outpouring of support  netted 700 pounds of canned goods and personal items for our local food pantries.

Community Bible Church Food Pantry – A very big ‘thank you” to everyone involved in the food drive. The assortment of food and personal care products was fantastic and so very much appreciated. You’re the best! Lovingly, Phyllis Babcock.

The Williamstown Community Chest is postponing its 13th annual Fun Run, originally scheduled for September 12, 2020.

Although we can’t gather as we usually do, we can do something sweet for our community. We invite our neighbors to support our local food pantries by stocking their shelves for the coming fall and winter. Everyone who brings a needed item for the food pantries will receive a thank you in the form of a coupon for a sweet treat at one of our local shops. Many thanks to MountainOne for underwriting this event.

The pantries have shared lists of necessities that are not available through other sources. So far the list includes food items, paper products, personal care items, cleaning products, and baby care items including diapers and baby food. (See the list below for specific items.)

Berkshire County statistics: 15% of the population or 19,300 individuals face food insecurity with poverty as the largest contributing factor. Learn more at Feeding America.org
