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.

A few items we always need…

canned soup, pasta sauce, pasta, tuna, canned beans, oatmeal, low sugar cereal, cooking oils, flour, sugar, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, butter, and meat.
