​In response to community need, the Danvers People to People Food Pantry was created by the Danvers Community Council to help Danvers families needing assistance. The pantry is operated by a team of volunteers who are dedicated to community service.  These volunteers collect food, stock shelves, interview clients as well as shop, distribute and deliver food.  Eligible clients may visit the pantry twice a month.  Since 2004, the food pantry has been located in the town's former Senior Center at 12 Sylvan Street.



REGISTRATION

Families in need register at the pantry.  Proper identification and proof of residency are required at each visit when signing in. A piece of mail such as an electric bill is necessary. A driver's license is not acceptable as proof of residency.
 

Nonresidents, please refer to our links page to find a pantry in your town as well as other North Shore resources which may be available for you.



WHAT IS SUPPLIED?

The pantry supplies families with the basic food groups as well as many extras.  During the holiday seasons a complete food package is given to all families.  Turkeys or hams are provided along with all the fixings.  Pies, candy, nuts and other items help to make the holidays special.


DONATIONS & SUPPLIES

Our food supply and funds are donated through drives at local schools, civic organizations, businesses, churches, the Postal Service, and the citizens of Danvers.  When supplies are low, food is purchased from local supporting merchants.  Many of our clients have special nutritional requirements. We always need LOW FAT, LOW SODIUM, or LOW SUGAR  food items.
