Every summer we re-enroll everyone and start over with a new Food Pantry list. Many people on the list have moved away, stopped coming to the Food Pantry, or passed away. Many people still come to the Food Pantry but they have a new apartment and we do not have their current address. The list is very long and gets confusing! When we re-enroll we get updated information from everyone and start fresh with a brand new list! Everyone must re-enroll by July 1. If you come to the Food Pantry after July 1 and you have not re-enrolled, you will need to wait in line to re-enroll. Save time and re-enroll online today! (If you are new to the Food Pantry, our current enrollment form is not available electronically. You’ll need to do one enrollment form to receive food between now and July 1, and you’ll need to wait in line to do that on Thursday morning. You’ll need to do another enrollment form to receive food after July 1. However, you can fill out that form online now!)

 

Chaque été, nous réinscrivons tout le monde. Nous recommençons avec une nouvelle liste Food Pantry. De nombreuses personnes figurant sur la liste actuelle ont déménagé, sont décédées ou ont cessé de venir au Food Pantry. Beaucoup de gens viennent encore au Food Pantry mais ils ont un nouvel appartement et nous n’avons pas leur adresse actuelle. La liste est très longue et encombrée ! Lorsque nous nous réinscrivons, nous recevons des informations mises à jour de tout le monde. Nous commençons le mois de juillet avec une toute nouvelle liste ! Tout le monde doit se réinscrire avant le 1er juillet. Si vous venez au Food Pantry après le 1er juillet et que vous ne vous êtes pas réinscrit, vous devrez faire la queue pour vous réinscrire. Gagnez du temps et réinscrivez-vous en ligne dès aujourd’hui ! (Si vous êtes nouveau au Food Pantry, notre formulaire d’inscription actuel n’est pas disponible par voie électronique. Vous devrez remplir un formulaire d’inscription pour recevoir de la nourriture d’ici le 1er juillet. Vous devrez faire la queue pour le faire jeudi matin. Vous devrez remplir un autre formulaire d’inscription pour recevoir de la nourriture après le 1er juillet. Cependant, vous pouvez remplir ce formulaire en ligne dès maintenant !)

 

Todos os verões inscrevemos de novo todas as pessoas que frequentam a Food Pantry. Muitas pessoas no nosso registo atual se mudaram, morreram ou deixaram de frequentar o Food Pantry. Muitas pessoas ainda vêm ao Food Pantry, mas têm um apartamento novo e não temos o endereço atual. A lista é muito longa e confusa! Quando renovamos o nosso registo, obtemos informações atualizadas de todos os participantes! Começamos julho com uma lista novíssima! Todos devem se reinscrever até 1º de julho. Se você vier ao Food Pantry depois de 1º de julho e não tiver se reinscrito, precisará esperar na fila para se reinscrever. Economize tempo e inscreva-se novamente online hoje! (Se você é novo no Food Pantry, nosso formulário de inscrição atual não está disponível eletronicamente. Você precisará preencher um formulário de inscrição para receber alimentos entre agora e 1º de julho. Você precisará esperar na fila para fazer isso na quinta-feira manhã. Você precisará preencher outro formulário de inscrição para receber alimentos após 1º de julho. No entanto, você pode preencher esse formulário online agora!)

 

Cada verano volvemos a inscribir a todos y empezamos de nuevo con una nueva lista de despensa de alimentos. Muchas personas en la lista se han mudado, han dejado de venir a la despensa de alimentos, o han fallecido. Muchas personas todavía vienen a la despensa de alimentos, pero tienen un apartamento nuevo y no tenemos su dirección actual. La lista es muy larga y se vuelve confusa! Cuando los reinscribimos obtenemos información actualizada de todos y empezamos de nuevo con una nueva lista! Todos deben volver a inscribirse antes del 1 de julio. Si viene a la despensa de alimentos después del 1 de julio y no se ha vuelto a inscribir, tendrá que esperar en la cola para volver a inscribirse. Ahorre tiempo y registrate en línea hoy! (Si es nuevo a la despensa de alimentos, nuestro formulario de inscripción actual no está disponible electrónicamente. Tendrá que hacer un formulario de inscripción para recibir alimentos entre ahora y el 1 de julio, y tendrá que esperar en la cola para hacerlo el jueves por la mañana. Tendrá que hacer otro formulario de inscripción para recibir comida después del 1 de julio. Sin embargo, puede llenar ese formulario en línea ahora!)

 

Groceries, diapers, and hope

The Food Pantry is open every Thursday morning. More than 100 households are served each week, mostly working families as well as elderly people and homeless people. We distribute thousands of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables and have recently increased the amount of food provided each week, adding meats and non-meat proteins like eggs and cheese. We also distribute 4,000 diapers every month. Donations of diapers are always needed and appreciated. Children’s books and toys are also distributed when they are donated. 

The pantry opens at 7:45 on Thursdays and closes at 10:45. Patrons can receive food every week and diapers once a month. Groceries are distributed in the courtyard during warmer weather and indoors during the winter. Anyone in need is welcome and there is a short sign-up form on your first day. If you would like to receive diapers please bring proof that you have a child under 48 months in your household, such as a DHHS statement or lease and proof of the child’s birthdate, such as a MaineCare card or birth certificate.

Each person coming to the Food Pantry may pick up for two households (most people pick up their own household’s food and a second bag of food for a neighbor, relative, or friend who is signed up but cannot come in). 

Please, donate today: Just $5 provides food for a family for a week!
