Mission Statement

At the Seacoast Family Food Pantry we strive to fulfill the needs of low-income individuals and families with food, personal care products and education for healthy living. We provide these services on both an emergency and on-going basis, respecting the dignity of each individual. We serve the Seacoast area including Greenland, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Kittery ME, New Castle, Newington, North Hampton, Portsmouth, Rye, Seabrook and Stratham.

Description

The Seacoast Family Food Pantry (SFFP) is one of the oldest social service agencies in New Hampshire. We began in 1816 by a small group of women whose goal was to feed the families of fishermen in Portsmouth, NH. Since these humble beginnings, we have grown to become a nearly $500,000 organization. Originally named the Ladies Humane Society, we changed our name in 2007 to better reflect the services we offer in our community. Our focus is not only to provide food and basic necessities but to inspire, encourage and teach our families how to make nutritionally sound food choices and prepare healthy meals. We continuously work with community partners including local farmers, grocers and the Portsmouth Farmers' Market to ensure we provide fresh fruits, vegetables, high quality proteins and whole grains year round. At SFFP we strive to fulfill the needs of low-income individuals and families with food, personal care products and education for healthy living. Services are provided on both an emergency and on-going basis, respecting the dignity of each individual.
