Feeding The Hungry

During this time of unprecidented need, we ask for your help.

The Pearl Street Cupboard & Café in Framingham, Marlborough Community Cupboard, and WHEAT Community Connections in Clinton, are all experiencing a massive increase in the number of new clients registering for help.  Many are applying for assistance for the first time in their lives, not sure what lies ahead but needing essential nutritious food for themselves and their families.

Since the Coronavirus hit Massachusetts hard in mid-March, the United Way of Tri-County has promised to remain open and assures the public they won’t turn anyone away.  This, even as more area food pantries are shuttering due to lack of food and volunteers. We are seeing new first time visitors coming from all over central Massachusetts to receive emergency food from one of our food pantries. We just can't do this without your help.

The United Way of Tri-County operates 3 food pantry locations in ClintonFramingham and Marlborough, the United Way of Tri-County’s Food Security Initiative provides those in need with regular access to nutritious foods and connects them with resources to reach their goal of self-sufficiency.
