Donating Food

    Thank you for considering donating food to the Berlin Family Food Pantry.

    This is a list of the most requested items, but any non-perishable food, canned or boxed can be donated. Please check the ‘use by code’ before you give it to us.

    Food items may be placed in the donation boxes at the Growing Room day care, the Berlin Post Office, the 1870 Town Hall, Market Basket, the Take It or Leave It shed at the Berlin Recycle Center, and the entrance to the Town Office Building at 23 Linden St., which is also where the food pantry is located. To arrange for a large donation to be brought directly to the pantry, please call Fran Gill at 978-838-2508 or leave an email message.
