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.
The WFP isn’t not only distributing bags during our scheduled pantry hours but weekly our volunteers are making prepackaged bags to be delivered to all Westford and Chelmsford Housing Authorities properties serving Westford residents. This effort is being coordinated through the Cameron Social Services staff who provide a weekly sign-up sheet at each housing property for residents to register for weekly distribution. On Friday, March 27th the WFP provided fifty-one bags to be handed out with the help of the Medical Reserve Corp volunteers. To learn more about this food distribution service for income based senior housing communities please contact Annette Cerullo, COA Outreach Coordinator at 978-399-2326 or Alison Christopher, Town Social Worker at 978-399-2325.
Donations are appreciated please see our donation button found on this website.
Thank you to all our volunteers and those who donated food items or funds toward our annual Westford holiday basket program - a partnership with the Westford food pantry, the Cameron Senior Center and the St Vincent de Paul Society. We are proud to have provided over 150 meals for families in need in our community! Happy Thanksgiving!!
We would like to thank the Westford police department for their food drive to benefit the Westford Food Pantry. Their food drive collected over 4O boxes of food! We are so appreciative of all the generosity and effort.
The Westford Food Pantry thanks girl scout troop 6293 for their creative and thoughtful donation of birthday bags for kids! The troop came up with the idea of donating a birthday bag for families to take home to help make birthday celebrations a little easier.
Each birthday bag is filled with cake mixes, cake pans, birthday candles, plates, napkins, and other items to celebrate each child's special day. This was a wonderful service project and a great way to help reach out to our community in need and come up with a special way to celebrate a child's special day! Great job girls!!
Thank you to all who participated in our food drive to "stuff the jeep" at the Westford Farmers market on July 30th. Despite the heat, we were able to stuff the jeep thanks to the generous donations from our community. Thank you!!
We thank the Westford Enterprise Bank branch team who recently held a food drive to support the efforts of the Westford Food Pantry.

WESTFORD GIRL SCOUT TROOP RECIPE BOOK & DONATION
A shout out to Westford Girl Scout Troop 69104, a Juniors level Troop who recently visited the us as part of a service project to better understand and help with the needs of our Food Pantry.
The troop presented the pantry with a significant monetary donation made from monies they raised as part of their cookie sales, and also developed a recipe book for easy and delicious meals to make with supplies commonly available at the Food Pantry!! The recipe book will be made available for clients to take home with them! Thanks to the troop for supporting the food pantry as their service project!
