Gorham Food Pantry supporting the community

Bill Couch, co-Executive Director of the pantry, Alison Smith, and Diane O’Neill Board President.

The Gorham Food Pantry has continued to support the community during the pandemic by providing food to residents via weekly “drive through” pantry opportunities.  As the pantry supports its clients, the entire town of Gorham has actively supported the pantry through monetary and food donations.  Residents have been so faithful in food donations that a second bin has been installed at the top of the ramp at the pantry.  As supplies initially became thin at the beginning of the pandemic, so many people have stepped up in so many ways.

The most recent example is Alison Smith, age 13.  Smith has made about 250 masks since the pandemic began.  Some have been donated to the Maine Veterans’ Home and the rest were sold for $3.00 each with all of the proceeds going to the Gorham Food Pantry.  In addition to mask purchases, Smith also received donations, which she passed along to the pantry.  Smith recently presented the Gorham Food Pantry with a check for $635.00. 

Thanks to Smith and many, many other community members, the Gorham Food Pantry continues to be able to provide food to neighbors in Gorham.  Small donations can be left anytime in the bin.  Large donations (via Amazon, for example) can be shipped to their location at 299-B Main Street in Gorham.  Monetary donations can be made via their website at www.gorhamfoodpantry.org, and clients can check that same website for current days and hours of operation.
