Over 90% of all donations are dedicated to fulfilling our goal of directly assisting those in need. The Peterborough Food Pantry is a program under the umbrella of the Peterborough Area Community Aid, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. Your donations and contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Tackling Hunger

1 in 7 households struggle with food insecurity in NH. Seniors and disabled veterans on inadequate fixed incomes are just scraping by, children are going without breakfast, unable to concentrate in school, and laid-off working men and women are struggling to put enough food on the table for their families.

That’s where we come in.

Emergency Aid

Our Emergency Aid Program is available to residents of all towns served by the Food Pantry. It is primarily for unexpected car repairs necessary to pass inspection. We work with community agencies to best determine how to help families or individuals in need. Turnaround time is quick once an application is submitted and all requirements are met.

Comments From Our Community

Recently a friend of mine who was in need of food went to the Food Pantry. She was very embarrassed to ask for help but the woman who met her at her car made her feel so welcome. The Food Pantry is so vital to the Town. Thanks for all you do."

"To those working tirelessly to help people in need: thank you! You are the backbone of our community and I am so grateful for your work."
