  • Clients in cars: Please stay in your car. Food will be placed in your TRUNK, so please have space cleared. Follow the cones set up in the parking lot, and a volunteer will check you in. You will then proceed to the pick-up area where groceries will be placed directly in trunks. Please try to make room in your trunk before coming to the pantry to help reduce any contact with others at the pantry.

  • Clients on foot: please go to the main entrance and wait for a volunteer’s assistance.

During this time, you do not need to be a registered client of the Acton Food Pantry, we will provide food to anyone who is in need. The video here describes how the pantry is operating during the pandemic. If you are unable to leave your home, we encourage you to ask a friend or neighbor to pick up food for you. If not possible please contact us at 978-635-9295 or and we will make every effort to assemble an order that can be brought to you.
