Food Pantry - Soup Kitchen - Foodbank






























It started out as a soup kitchen in 1983 with a couple dozen volunteers and support from local churches and friends. They served soup to 25 people in a church basement and as time passed and more people came, it was quickly discovered that the soup kitchen's offering was the only daily meal for some of its guests.

Today, 27 years later, The Community Kitchen has become a helping hand to 12,000 hungry people in the Monadnock Region. Of the 976,367 meals provided last year, over 62% went  to children under the age of 19. We anticipate serving 1.1 million meals this year. The families seeking food assistance are not just the homeless. Most are the working poor desperately trying to feed their children healthy meals and many upper middle class parents who have recently suffered family upset through divorce, health issues or job loss.
