St. Joseph ’s Food Pantry is a client choice food pantry that is truly dedicated to maintaining the dignity of the people it serves. ‘Guests’ come to the ‘market’ once a month to select the items that best suits their needs, and if they can’t come to the ‘market’, the ‘Moving Market’ comes to them.
Its outreach delivery program provides two bags of groceries and household items to more than 144 elderly, disabled and disadvantaged North Shore residents each and every month.
Its Little Lambs Baby Program provides food, diapers, wipes, and other supplies of more than four hundred children in any given month and its Youth Summer Meal Program provides lunch and organizes field trips for more than 150 Salem area youths in June, July, August and early September.
St. Joseph’s Food Pantry runs Holiday programs for children as well as special holiday meals for families, an art program for 9-12 year olds, emergency housing, pharmacy help, and some aid for utility bills.
