Millis Ecumenical Food Pantry
“FOR MILLIS, BY MILLIS”
The Millis Ecumenical Food Pantry has been in continuous operation since November of 1991.
The mission of the pantry is to provide 3 days of non-perishable food items to our clients every 2 weeks.
We are housed in the Church of Christ, and rely on the residents, churches, civic organizations, school groups, and companies of Millis for funding and food donations.
We think of ourselves as “For Millis, By Millis”.
“I started using the food pantry at the beginning of the pandemic. I had a steady job in a restaurant, but that went away with COVID, and I needed help. The assistance I got from the pantry allowed me to make ends meet until I could return to work.”
“I just started using the pantry. It fills the gap I had in my monthly food needs.”
“I turned to the pantry when I injured myself and couldn’t work. Everyone there has been kind and respectful and helped me through my injury.”
“Food, energy, and transportation costs keep going up. I need the pantry to help me get through the month.”
“I am a seasonal worker. I don’t use the pantry all the time, but I know it’s there when my hours at work are cut.”
The pantry is open every Saturday from 10 – noon, and the first and third Wednesdays from 10 – noon.
