The only requirement to receive food at the Cupboard is to show proof of residency in the town of Norton.You may come to the pantry to register during the hours we are open. New recipients are asked to fill out our registration form which is kept confidential. The amount of food given is based on the number of people in your household. If you would like to fill out the form ahead of time, it is available here:
You will be asked to show proof of identification and residency by providing a driver's license and a recent bill (within 30 days) showing your home address. We cannot always offer a consistent amount of food since our stock depends on the donations given by various people and organizations. We will do our best to offer you a variety of food staples for your family. We also try to be mindful of dietary restrictions, but you will be responsible for selecting food items appropriate to your needs.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
If you are a local business or organization and want to help the pantry, here are a few suggestions:
We have donation bins for food located at:
Roche Bros. Supermarket
Mansfield Savings Bank (Norton)
U.S. Post Office (Norton)
Norton Public Library
Big Y Supermarket (Easton)
Donations bins are currently available at Roche Bros., Walgreens, and the mailbox side of the Norton Post Office.
We especially need food donations during the summer months when schools are not in session, and there are no sporting events or holidays to provide opportunities for food collection.
