– Sherry Anderson

Hannaford Run We need help picking up breads and pastry at Hannaford's on Saturday mornings. Hannaford donates bread and pastries from the day before to the pantry that we can offer to our clients. Each Saturday morning a volunteer goes to Hannaford's, loads the bread and pastries, and brings it back to the food pantry to be put into the freezer. Volunteers would do a shift about once every 6 weeks. If you are interested in helping out please email Sue.
AMAZON SMILE Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to the People First Food Pantry of Uxbridge if you choose us as your favorite charitable organizations.
