Autumn 2014

Scouting for Food - Please put your donations out on Saturday November 8

Food is low. We need your help.

Scouting for food is the Food Pantry's largest annual food drive. Thanks to the generous donations of Northborough residents and the Scouts, food collected on this one day feeds families who use our pantry throughout the winter and early spring.

Scouting for Food will take place Saturday November 8th in Northborough.

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Venture Scouts will go door to door to collect food for the Northborough Food Pantry.

This year Scouts are "going green" and will not distribute plastic bags the week before, instead they will leave door hangers reminding residents about the food drive.

Northborough residents are reminded to put their donations out by 9 am on Saturday November 8.

Amazing Applefest

Thank you to all of the supporters who stopped by to enter the Applefest Raffle! Our Applefest booth had a display of literature to raise awareness of the Northborough Food Pantry.

No doubt that folks stopped by the booth because of the four eye-catching gift baskets that were available as a fund raising raffle event. Themes of the donated baskets were Layers of Luck (lottery tickets), Gift Cards Galore (gift cards to local businesses), Crock-Pot Cooking For Two, and Wegmans Gourmet Treats.

Thank you to Northborough Recreation soccer player 9 year old Keely Scott for her services in randomly selecting the winning tickets for each basket.

Congrats to Jenny W, Janet R., Carol W., and Kathy K. the holders of the winning raffle tickets. And thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth to support us with a donation.
