Local food pantries seeking donations

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Quincy Neighborhood Federation is making a push to fill mini food pantries across Quincy.

Volunteers are asking for non-perishable items like canned goods and granola bars as well as items that can heated up in a microwave.

They said they're also looking for non-food items like diapers and paper towels.

Officials said for some families this time of the year is harder to keep children fed.

"With it being summer with it being hot out, with parents now having to go back to work maybe they've been laid off for the last couple of months due to the coronavirus situation," volunteer Trenton Murfin said.

"Some of these parents might be working extra hours and not have time to feed their kids or have the means to make sure that they have a full meal."

Murfin said even if you don't have time to stock the mini boxes yourself, you can always drop supplies off at specified drop off locations.

"We have drop off locations, one of which being my office but also Liberty Bank on 44th and Broadway which is serving as a drop off location for the month of June," he said. So if you go to the grocery store you pickup some extra items you want to drop them buy on your way home, you can do that."

List of Mini Pantry Locations:

801 Elm Street (8th & Elm)

812 Payson Ave (8th & Payson)

101 South 7th (7th & Maine)

609 North 6th (6th & Oak)
