Our clients vary in age, size of family and circumstance. Some need the food pantry for a short period of time to help overcome a setback, others need it on an ongoing basis due to limited income. All are welcome, and all are treated with respect and privacy. Please call Mary Mikelk at 774-245-8320 to make an appointment. First time visitors to the Food Pantry are asked to complete a simple client interview and registration process. All information received is confidential.
Food Pantry services are available to all residents of the Town of Berlin and its employees. Each client household may receive food twice a month. The amount of food is dependent on family size and special needs. For the time being, during the Covid-19 Pandemic, we require no documentation of financial status, just proof of residency in the town of Berlin.
What to Expect
The Berlin Family Food Pantry has new safety protocols in place during the Covid-19 Pandemic . Clients are welcome to make an appointment and come in and shop, one client at a time. A volunteer will be available to assist you. We are also taking orders by phone, text or email and packing boxes for pickup if preferred. If you are without transportation, we will deliver it to you.
The Berlin Family Food Pantry will open for in person shopping on Saturday, May 15th, 2021. We will continue to pack boxes/bags for pick up or delivery if requested. Call us if you need assistance!
