Our Food Pantry Needs a New Home.
The North Reading Food Pantry is moving to a larger and more efficient location so they need our support in order to renovate an existing building. The new facility will double the size of our current pantry, allow them to store more food and improve the shopping experience for their clients. In addition, they will add a desperately needed walk-in freezer.Buy Some Comics

A Brief History
The North Reading Food Pantry under the direction of CCS was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) when its doors opened in 1996. The Pantry is an all-volunteer organization that is open to all North Reading residents. The Pantry presently serves 110 households each month. As well as food, the Pantry offers occasional financial assistance, provides back-to-school supplies and clothing, sponsors the Take-a-Tag program and supplies holiday dinner baskets.The Food Pantry NOW
The pantry is presently located in the North Reading Town Hall as a tenant-at-will where a secure room of 450 square feet is allocated for pantry use. An adjoining room (a gym) that is used for other purposes is available only during pantry hours. The space is not completely accessible nor is it ADA-compliant. Pantry volunteers must set up and breakdown tables and chairs in this gym space after every pantry session. There is no storage space for the sizeable donations of non-perishable food that the pantry receives throughout the year. There is no space available for a commercial freezer, nor is there space for the Pantry’s Take-a-Tag program.The Christian Community Service
, an interfaith partnership between our local churches has created their own fundraiser with additional information on the project: The Home Fund
