Description: The OOB Community Food Pantry provides food to all Old Orchard Beach residence in need.
Food Pantry and Clothes Closet
We serve any residents of the Town of Old Orchard Beach that meet certain income guidelines as part of the Good Shepherd Food Bank Network and the USDA Food Program. Residents are allowed to use this service and receive this food once per month, but we also offer other food such as bread on a first-come first-serve basis.
Volunteers Requests by Old Orchard Beach Community Food Pantry: The Old Orchard Beach Community Food Pantry offers many volunteer opportunities for those who wish to serve their community and its essential needs. We invite all interested parties to stop in for a visit and see the many areas in which we are already supporting our community. We are also always interested in new ideas for how we might extend our services. In addition to needing individuals who can work in the Pantry and Boutique during our regular hours, we are always looking for individuals who are interested in donating time to other activities and fundraisers, including: help to set up and manage our seasonal yard sales; carpenters and builders for updates/improvements to our facility; drivers for donation pick-ups; master gardeners for working in the community garden; helpers to represent us at various functions ( Ironman, Silent Auctions, the polling stations, etc.); bakers to provide baked goods and/or man the tables; and other activities as needed. Extra help is especially appreciated around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays when we marshal all our resources to help as many families as possible though what can be a stressful time when budgets are limited. We greatly value all our volunteers and whatever they can offer.
Donation Requests by Old Orchard Beach Community Food Pantry: Donations of food are always welcome. We accept donations of clean, used clothing, shoes, books, and household goods, which are provided free of charge to all community members. We ask patrons to limit themselves to six items from the Boutique per visit, but patrons can access the Boutique any time the Pantry is open. All donations are tax-deductible.
