The Boscawen Congregational Church's food pantry has had a very busy winter and now along with everyone else we can't wait for Spring! As of the end of February we have 94 clients. 31 of which are children under 18, and 29 elderly. They are our neighbors, friends, and family. The food pantry and clothes closet are open Monday 10am-12pm, Wednesday 3pm-6pm and Saturday 10am-12pm. Unfortunately we lost our biggest donor in December. We rely solely on monetary donations to buy the food that our clients need. It is very true that for every dollar we receive we are able to stretch it to buy enough for 2 meals. If you would like to help us with a monetary donation please make your check Payable to Boscawen Congregational Church, Food Pantry, 12 High St., Boscawen, NH 03303
