WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Community Fund services a pantry supplying food products on a bimonthly basis to those in need. If you are experiencing food-insecurity and you need help you, are welcome. Shelves are stocked solely by community donations. Food items can be dropped in the marked bins at Market Basket and Lucci’s, as drop-off times on Saturdays are limited due to the Coronavirus.
If you are a Wilmington resident in need of assistance, please stop by the Food Pantry at 142 Chestnut Street (Old South School House) to fill out an application. Proof of residency (photo ID, pay stub or a current bill) is required. An interview for assistance will be conducted on-site.
