The mission of the pantry is to help our neighbors and church parishioners who are struggling to provide meals for their families.
The Southborough Food Pantry was established in 1990 by clergy and congregants from six of the Southborough Churches. It has always been located at Pilgrim Church, first in a small closet and currently in a former classroom in the rear of Fellowship Hall. Today, five Southborough churches sponsor and staff the pantry along with community support:
- Pilgrim Church
- St. Matthew Church
- St. Anne Church
- St. Mark’s Episcopal Church
- First Community Church
You can find full contact information for the member parishes on the Contact Us page.
Volunteers from these churches and the community staff the Pantry on a rotating basis.
The Pantry regularly serves 59 families, for a total of 133 members.
The Pantry maintains an assortment of basic foods as well as items not available for purchase with an EBT card, such as paper goods and personal care items. There are also refrigerated and frozen foods, and fresh fruits and vegetables are often available. There is even a pet food pantry to help you provide the essentials for your four legged companions. There are quantity limits and once a month only items based on availability. Clients may shop once a week.
