Food and Clothing Pantry


The Montachusett Veterans Outreach Center food and clothing pantry supports veterans and their family members, as many as 200 individuals monthly, throughout North Central Massachusetts.

If you are a housebound veteran in North Central Massachusetts and would benefit from a once monthly food box delivery, please give us a call to get on our list. Should you need assistance outside of operating hours please call us at 978-632-9601 and we will arrange a pick up time.

You can also search for other area food pantries via the Worcester County Food bank agency finder here.

  • No expired food, opened food, damaged footwear, or undergarments are accepted
  • No stained storage containers, rusted kitchenware, partially used household items are accepted, furniture, used bedding, or electronics are accepted
