History & Mission Page

Tewksbury Community Pantry, Inc.
999 Whipple Road
Tewksbury, MA 01876



The Tewksbury Community Pantry was established in January 1995 in response to the desire of many community leaders to address the hunger issue in Tewksbury. Prior to that time, a smaller-scale food share program had been operated from St. William's Church of Tewksbury. When it became apparent that this program could no longer adequately handle the needs of the town, the "Pantry" came into existence. With support from town officials, a rent-free site of operation was provided at the Center School on Pleasant Street for almost three years.

The Tewksbury Community Pantry is currently housed in a building which was specifically constructed for the Pantry. Through generous donations of money, labor, and building materials, the community erected the existing building on the site of the Department of Public Works.


The mission of the Tewksbury Community Pantry is to provide assistance to Tewksbury residents in need. The Pantry offers help in other ways when possible, informing clients of other available resources through links on our website, information at the pantry, monthly newsletters, flyers and posters.

The primary goal of the organization is to provide a resource for those in need and to offer food and fellowship, as well as to act whenever and however possible as advocates for the disadvantaged. The Pantry's key achievements consist of, providing a safe, well kept, clean and comfortable environment which the clients can come to for food, food preparation suggestions and support from the volunteers.

Confidential assistance is given to everyone who receives food from the Tewksbury Community Pantry.
