The Blue Door Pantry
The Blue Door Pantry is always a busy place. Friends gather, and “shop” for much needed grocery items and gently used clothing. We are always grateful for financial and food donations to help keep the shelves stocked! Please note: The entrance is through the Blue Door at the back of the building.
Through generous donations, The Blue Door Food Pantry always holds with a wide range of family needs.
Summer heat has arrived and the children are home from school. Hunger does not go away simply because the kids are home. In fact, the need increases as they play outside and need more calories to sustain them. Additionally, we have seen a large increase in the number of people needing to use the services of the food pantry including many newcomers to Hamilton.The Food Pantry is CRITICALLY SHORT on: Fruit Cups & Chocolate Pudding cups, Lunch Snacks, Juice Boxes, Canned Vegetables and Canned Fruit, Canned Chicken, Turkey & Ham, Dry Pasta, eg. Macaroni & Spaghetti, Cookies, Toothpaste & Toothbrushes Bar Soap and ALL Toiletries as well as Laundry & Dish Detergent. If you are able to add one or two of these items to your shopping list and donate it to the DC, our clients are always deeply appreciative.
