Watch a short film created by Wheaton students that shows what we do at the Cupboard of Kindness food pantry.
The Cupboard of Kindness began in 2001 at the Trinitarian Church in Norton.
Our mission as a non-profit organization is to serve the residents of Norton, MA who need food relief. We provide non-perishable food items, personal care items, and health aids at no cost. We provide a positive atmosphere and guide our recipients to area resources to facilitate self-sufficiency. The pantry will collaborate with the town of Norton, MA on an on-going basis, seeking volunteers and resouces for the support of our operations.
We began by servicing approximately 15-20 families, but we eventually outgrew our location. The Norton Police Department graciously donated a garage that was no longer in use and this is now the present location of the food pantry.We are located at 70 East Main Street, Norton, MA. We are right next to the Norton Town Hall.
We currently serve 40-50 families and our volunteers have also made about 15-20 deliveries to Woodland Meadows, a low income senior citizens housing development in Norton.
