Dear Friends of The Food Pantry,
The Watertown Food Pantry is a non-profit, Christian-based organization created to provide food needs at no cost to those individuals and families residing in the Watertown School District who find themselves economically distressed. This service is available to anyone who qualifies as having an income below nationally established poverty levels.
The Watertown Food Pantry serves between 200 – 300 families per month, and is open Monday through Friday and including Thursday evenings. Even with generous community monetary support and food donations, the Food Pantry still purchases cheese, fresh meat and a variety of staples to keep the shelves stocked.
The Watertown Food Pantry is blessed with over 80 wonderful volunteers who assist with the daily distribution of food, sorting and daily food pick up.
The current state of the economy has meant that more people than ever are eligible for services through the Food Pantry. We would like you to be our ambassadors around the community and spread the word about the needs of the Food Pantry. At the same time, please encourage people to use the Pantry when hit by an economic hardship. We often hear about people who have been laid off from their jobs, had hours reduced, or have otherwise experienced a reduction in income and yet are unsure if they are eligible for services. We support use of the Pantry so that monetary resources can be maximized for housing costs and other necessary expenses.
