Nantucket Food Pantry
The food pantry was founded in 1991. For the past several years, the pantry has distributed more than 16,000 bags of groceries to approximately 1700 hungry neighbors, reaching a high of 20,000 bags in the past year. We know there are still many hungry neighbors who we are not yet serving. The Food Assistance Program will continue outreach efforts to identify and meet more of the existing need. Additionally, NFFRA will continue partnerships with Sustainable Nantucket to develop the Share your Harvest program inviting backyard gardeners of Nantucket to donate excess local produce to the food pantry. Our partnership with Moors End Farm has been providing us with fresh eggs and a farmer’s market bounty for clients for the last few years. We also continued our partnership with Bartlett’s Farm and purchased CSA shares to sustain the number of fresh, local fruits and vegetables we offer at the food pantry. We began a partnership with new Food Rescue committee to explore gleaning and expansion of food rescue initiatives with restaurants and real estate brokers.
