Any Millis resident is welcome to shop at the pantry. All we require is proof of Millis residency. We like to say we have an “open door, with a low threshold”.

We average about 60 registered families at any one time. Some families need help every two weeks, others only a couple of times a year. Also, we see about 15 new registrations a year, while we also have some families that stop using the pantry each year.

We average about 800 visits a year from our client families.

100% of financial donations are used to purchase food. We are fortunate that the Church of Christ houses the pantry and provides our infrastructure, and our staff is all volunteer.

Once a month we pick up an order from the Greater Boston Food Bank, once a month we purchase a large order from Roche Brothers, and the rest comes from food donations. People in town drop off food in the collection bin at the front of Roche Brothers, and organizations and students run food drives.
