Wilmington Food Pantry To Offer Assistance For Families In Need On October 13 & 27

Below is information from the Wilmington Community Fund:

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.

How to Register for Food Assistance

No appointment is necessary. Interviews for assistance are conducted on site at the food pantry on Wednesdays (as shown above on schedule). Vital information about you and your family is necessary to create a profile and is not a guarantee that assistance will be provided.

  • Name, address, phone number, size of family
  • Proof of Residency – (i.e., utility bill, rent/mortgage bill, EBT card, health insurance, library card, etc.)
  • ​List of Income(s) – Paycheck Stub, Child Support, SSI, Food Stamps, TANF, Unemployment Check
