Our Latest Press Release

June 1st 2022

In addition to its regular hours of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 11 am to 4 pm, Lakes Region Food Pantry and Thrift Shop will be open Saturdays during the summer from 10 am – 1 pm June 4th through September 3rd (excluding July 2nd).  Spring and Summer months bring more donations and it’s a great time to come in and browse.  LRFP welcomes shoppers and also encourages donations of gently used items including clothes, household goods and decor, furniture and small working appliances. For reference please see a list of accepted items on our website lakesregionfoodpantry.org.  The generous support of donors near and far have made the children’s summer lunch program possible.  Starting in June eligible families of Moultonborough and Interlakes students will receive weekly vouchers to purchase healthy foods at their choice of 3 local grocery stores.  $25 each week per child for 10 weeks allows families to provide healthy meals for their children while they are out of school for the summer months and not receiving free and reduced lunch.  Each child is also enrolled in a sneaker and backpack program.  Parents bring their children to Bootleggers in Meredith to be fitted for new sneakers for the new school year and to receive a new backpack.  LRFP is open to suggestions for additional outreach programs and can be reached in person during business hours or via 603-476-5400.
