The Brown Church Food Pantry serves the towns of Conway, Eaton, Albany and Chatham. It is an essential support for many valley families. Families and individuals apply for support and are granted a variety of food and basic hygiene items.
Financial and food donations come from many community groups and individuals. The U.S.D.A., New Hampshire Food Bank, Sherman Farms and local markets such as Hannaford, Shaws and Walmart provide many food commodities to stock our shelves and refrigerators.
Our food pantry annually distributes Thanksgiving Baskets which include all of the ingredients for a full holiday meal from the turkey (and the pan to cook it in) to the pumpkin pie for approximately 75 households.
Approximately 20 volunteers work during the year to pick up and sort donations, stock shelves, rotate food items and package food and other items for pickup each week. Church and community volunteers donate over 2000 hours to provide this vital service to the community.
Our food pantry provides monthly meals for:
Over 8,000 Meals
