The Pantry serves over 200 Holliston families, totaling more than 480 people, including many children.
The Pantry is often the only immediate assistance agency that Holliston residents can turn to.
Other social service agencies often make potential recipients work through a long, grueling application process.
Just because a person has to ask for help does not mean that they should forfeit their dignity. The Pantry works to protect the identities of its clients through its location and Card System. The cards do not list the name of the user, only a pantry number.
Without the Pantry, more than 300 people in Holliston might go to bed hungry every night. That's about 1 in 50 Holliston residents.
How to use the pantry...
Any Holliston resident in need may use the Pantry by obtaining a Pantry Card through the Town Clerk's
Office at Town Hall. A resident completes a brief form, providing name, address, number of people in
the family, and telephone number. The Town Clerk confirms that the resident is listed in the Census
and mails the Pantry Card to the applicant. Residents must present the card every time he/she shops.
The card does not have the resident's name on it thus allowing users to remain anonymous.
