The Westford Food Pantry thanks the Westford Police Department for their enormous donation of food items from the annual market basket food drive this past Saturday!! Their food drive collected 6 truck loads of food - over 100+ bags! Definitely their biggest drive yet to date!! The generosity of this community is outstanding and greatly appreciated!! Well Done WPD!!
Together we can help struggling families facing financial hardship celebrate the holidays by providing a means to obtain holiday meals and children’s gifts through food vouchers and gift cards.
The Westford Food Pantry in partnership with Friends of the Cameron Senior Center and St. Vincent De Paul are seeking cash donations to provide assistance to families in need through our annual Westford Holiday Basket Program.

NEW HOURS OF OPERATION EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
Due to restrictions that are placed on the Cameron Senior Center - and in an effort to continue to supply food to those in need as well as protect our volunteers and clients as much as possible - effective immediately until further notice the Westford Food Pantry will be open WEDNESDAY 6-8PM AND FRIDAY 9-11AM ONLY. Clients will continue to receive a pre-packed bag as well as protein (chicken/fish/eggs/cheese). In order to minimize the exposure to volunteers, food and clients, we are limiting the number of volunteers at this time.
In the past year the Westford Food Pantry was open 15-20 times a month, totaling over 600 hours of operation. Each month we served over 250 local famlies and gave out over 400 bags of groceries, personal care products and household items to those in need in our community. We are generously supported by The Cameron Senior Center, schools, businesses, civic organizations and by generous individuals who give both time and monetary donations and food donations. We could not be successful without the generous support of our community!
Volunteers and donors support many necessary roles within our organization to help those in need in our community.
The generosity of our community is what enables our food pantry to serve so many families in need in our community. We appreciate and welcome the help of our generous neighbors.
To maintain the confidentiality of our clients, volunteers must be 18 years of age and have completed high school to work in the pantry. Younger volunteers are welcome to support the pantry through food drives and fund raisers.
If you are interested in volunteering for the food pantry please fill out our contact form here.
