During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Currently we are seeking volunteers for Friday mornings and Sunday afternoons. On Friday mornings our volunteers sort and process all of food from our pickups and donations that week, and prepare it to be distributed to our Pantry clients on Sundays. On Sunday afternoons our volunteers assist with client check-in and food distribution.
Additionally, we are always looking for volunteers with access to an SUV or a car with a large trunk to help us with our Friday morning supermarket pickups. Food is picked up from one of our local participating supermarkets and delivered back to our pantry at 1520 Westbrook St. for sorting and organizing. Timing is typically around 8-11am.
Please contact our director, Doug, at email@example.com or call 207-200-5985 if you are able to volunteer. We welcome volunteers ages 15+, and also 10-14 when accompanied by an adult.

To do the work of Jesus by feeding those in need, and reducing the number of food insecure within the Greater Portland Community. "For I was hungry and you fed me..."
Stroudwater Food Pantry (SFP) services the Greater Portland Community by providing fresh meat, dairy and produce to those in need.
Thanks to our generous volunteers and supporters, we have been able to fill the fresh produce gap for our clients on a weekly basis (see our blog at www.StroudwaterFoodPantry.com/blog for our weekly pantry reports and check us out on Facebook for regular updates at facebook.com/stroudwaterfoodpantry).
In 2017, SFP distributed 53 tons of groceries to families in need-the equivalent of an estimated 265,000 meals.
We welcome donations of any amount, which we will use to purchase much needed dry staples for the pantry (such as peanut butter, pasta, tuna fish, spaghetti sauce, soup and cereal).
If you would like to learn more about pantry operations, donations, or volunteering please contact our director, Doug, at Stroudwaterfoodpantry@gmail.com or call 207-200-5985.
We'll work with your schedule.
