How to Donate Food
The cycle of hunger never stops, which includes the need for food donations year round. The Norwood Food Pantry could really use your donations of Canned Meats and Tuna, Canned Pasta, Canned Fruit, Mac and Cheese, Pasta (dry spaghetti) and Spaghetti Sauce, Peanut Butter and Rice. Donations can be brought to the pantry on Thursday or Saturday morning (150 Chapel St, Norwood) or placed in the bins located at the library, Shaw’s, or Stop n Shop.
How to Donate Money
We often need to purchase hygiene and household products that aren’t donated. Your donation will support the purchases we need to make, as well as the normal costs of operations (office supplies, shelving, etc.) The Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, so your contribution is fully tax deductible. All contributions will be acknowledged. Donations can be made in honor of a special occasion or in memory of someone.
