Loaves and Fishes is a local food pantry dedicated to provide nutritious food, in an atmosphere of kindness and respect, to individuals in need who reside in Ayer, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Littleton and Shirley.
The Groton Woman’s Club supports this community outreach by collecting food, healthcare items and monetary donations at our monthly meetings. These items are then delivered by our Club members to Loaves and Fishes for distribution. Several members also volunteer at the food pantry sorting, shelving and distributing items.
Items needed on a fairly consistent basis are protein based foods such as beans, chili, soups and macaroni and cheese. Always needed are personal care products such as soap, toothpaste, shampoo, feminine care products, diapers and pull ups.
