​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.
