The Food Shelf serves folks who live in Chester or Andover and who are having difficulty providing food for their family. The Food Shelf is open Thursdays from 2:00 to 6:00 PM and Fridays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Folks may come in once a month for their regular food shelf. Folks may also come on every Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM to pick up fresh produce (Fresh Friday).
If you or someone you know is in need of food assistance, please come to the Food Shelf to complete the Intake Form or download a form by clicking on link below. When you bring the completed form to the Food Shelf, please also bring proof of residency. All personal information is kept confidential.
