Corona Virus Updates for the Hot Meals and Food Pantry Distribution
In an effort to keep everyone safe, we have instituted a change in our Hot Meals and Pantry Programs:
Hot Meals: evening meals are served as take-out

Monday through Friday from 5pm – 6:20pm
Lunch on Sunday from 11am -12noon.

Pantry hours will stay the same:
Wednesday 12.30-5.30pm
Thursday 11.30 am – 4pm
Any questions please call 603 352 3200

On Wednesday and Thursday pantry clients will be asked to register at the front door of the building and will then be directed to the back door where they will pick up their food. Pre-packed bags of non-perishable food items, bread, meat and some produce will be distributed.

People wishing to register will be given a registration form and will be asked to bring proof of residency, income and date of birth for household members the following week by appointment.

This change has been put in place to safeguard staff, volunteers and clients alike. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation at this very difficult time.

Gleaning For The Community Kitchen

The Community Kitchen, Inc. (TCK) of Keene NH implemented its gleaning program in July of 2013. The gleaning program is one of six regional gleaning programs supported by NH Gleans, part of the University of New Hampshire’s Farm to School program. TCK’s local program provides a year-round, 30-hours per week for Sarah Harpster, the Gleaning Coordinator, covering the area of Cheshire County, NH.
The mission of the gleaning coordinator is principally to capture fresh, locally grown produce which is at risk of being wasted, usually due to overproduction for the market. In Cheshire County, an active food movement has greatly enhanced the local gleaning program. Many local businesses and organizations grew produce specifically for the purpose of donating it to the charitable food system.
