The Pantry relies on the generosity of our community to feed our neighbors whether it be through volunteer work, a financial gift or the donation of food. We do not receive state or federal funding.

Financial contributions can be made online through our PayPal account (perhaps consider a reoccurring monthly donation), cash or check. Checks can be mailed to 9 Main Street, Suite C, Bowdoinham, Maine 04008. No gift is too small! And all gifts are tax deductible.

Food Donations can be brought to the Pantry each Wednesday between 10-3:30PM at 9 Main Street (just look for the red awning); our fantastic volunteers will be there to assist you! We also have drop boxes at the Bowdoinham Post Office and the Bowdoinham Country Store – these locations are open during their regular business hours and are equipped to accept non-perishable items. We cannot accept opened/used/expired items. If you wouldn’t feed it to your family, it most likely won’t work for us. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see a list of our current needs.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are a powerful way to support a mission beyond one’s lifetime. This type of donation allows the donor to give in a way that goes beyond their typical level of support and benefits the mission in a significant way. With many forms of planned gifts available, they are often part of a larger financial or estate planning strategy.
