Food Shelf

The Food Shelf is available to individuals and families who live in Chester or Andover and who are having difficulty purchasing food. If you or someone you know is in need of food assistance, all that is required is the completion of our Intake Form which can be downloaded by clicking on link below. All personal information is kept strictly confidential. Food Shelf days are every Thursday of the month from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, recipients may only receive food from the food shelf once a month.  Recipients may come on every Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to pick up fresh produce. If you would like to donate items for the Food Shelf and are wondering what is needed, here are some suggestions: hearty and nutritious non-perishables such as canned soups, stews, sauces, fruits, vegetables, boxed or canned meals, peanut butter, jelly, tuna fish, cereal, pasta, and rice. You may drop off your donations at the Center during regular hours: Tuesday, 10 to 4, Wednesday, 1 to 7, Friday, 10 to 4, and Saturday, 9 to 2.
