Food pantry is available
This letter is to remind needy folks that the dedicated Shepherd’s Pantry volunteers, located at the Long Plain United Methodist Church, 1215 Main St., Acushnet, are waiting to serve you. Before the pandemic made its way into our lives, the clients who came looking for help averaged around 90 individuals each Saturday between the hours of 9 and 11 a.m. Now, our average totals are a lot lower.
Just to remind you all, we have and continue to make sure that everyone, including our clients and volunteers are safe and we take all precautions concerning how we distribute the non-perishable food that we hand out. That is — everyone must wear masks and we limit the amount of people who enter the pantry.
So…if you are food insecure, please be advised that we are open and willing to help. Our motto has been and will continue to be, “no one will be turned away empty handed if you come looking for help.”
If you have any questions, please call the pantry at, 508-763-9289.
God bless, Gerry Payette, Director/Shepherd’s Pantry
