DEVENS — Due to the heavy rain on the day of the Letter Carriers food drive, the amount of food received was considerably less than Loaves & Fishes had hoped and planned for.

In fact, the pantry received less than half of what was received last year. These food donations, intended to satisfy families in need well into the summer, have already been distributed, leaving pantry shelves bare once again with food supplies at critically low levels!

Throughout the summer, many lose sight of the ever-present, ongoing needs of those the pantry serves, and donations typically fall way short of the need.

Loaves & Fishes needs food NOW.

Residents are encouraged to organize food drives within your neighborhoods as well as at your workplace. Please contact drives@devenspantry.org for further information, visit our Web site at www.devenspantry.org or call (978) 772-4627.
