2023 LES Halloween Party Results

This year 160 children enjoyed the Halloween Party. We all had a great time!

Thirty-two volunteers worked endlessly to make this happen and to make sure the party went smoothly. Thank you very much for all your hard work and effort!

Of course, the party would not be able to happen without our generous sponsors. Thank you so much!

The pantry received 819 pounds of food and $643.70 in funds. This will allow us to give out enough food to people in need to create 3,257 meals.

By the way, the 2024 LES Halloween Party is taking place on Friday, October 18, 2024 (6 pm – 8 pm). So, mark your calendars now if you want to volunteer, bake, sponsor, or attend. But trust us, we will remind you closer to the party date.


Thanksgiving Box Signup Deadline October 1st – October 31st

Anyone who is qualified to come to Loudon Food Pantry can receive a Thanksgiving Box.   We are signing up those eligible starting October 1st and ending October 31st.  If you come in after October 31st to sign up, there will be no guarantee we’ll have enough food to fill your order.  Please sign up early so we know how much food we need to have on hand. Last year’s boxes contained fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, as well as the Thanksgiving Dinner fixings. We hope the farms that helped last year will be kind enough to donate again this year so we can offer the same selection of fresh fruits and vegetables!  To sign up or if you think you’re eligible to receive a Thanksgiving Box, please call (603) 724-9731 and ask for Sue.

How we helped our communities

In July 2023 we gave out enough food to 230 individuals for them to prepare 3,967 meals.  Of these people, 137 were age 60 and older (60%), 33 were age 18 or under (14%), and 60 were between those ages (26%).

Loudon Old Home Day

We had a booth at Loudon Old Home Day this year.  It was great reconnecting with everyone and signing up new people as well.  This year turned out to be exceptional.  We collected $3,280.90 in donations and sold $2 in wrist bands.  

In addition to the sales and donations, we unexpectedly received the following:  The Lions Pancake breakfast held on Saturday donated $1,400.00 and The Joint Church Service held on Sunday donated $687.00.

The total received from Loudon Old Home Day events was $5,369.90.  These additional funds will allow us to purchase engough and hand out enough food to create 21,480 meals.  It was completely unexpected.  Thank you so much!

The LES Halloween Party is on again for this year.

I spoke with Loudon Elementary and confirmed the Halloween Party is a “go” for Friday October 20th.  The party runs from 6 pm – 8 pm. Yes, we will need lots of volunteers before, during, and after the party.  We will also need plenty of sponsors as well!  If you want to volunteer or contribute online go to LoudonFoodPantry.org, click on the Current Events Tab, then LES Halloween Party.  A printable volunteer form is available there as well! If you want to contribute via mail, please send any contributions directly to:  Attn:  LES HP Fund, Loudon Food Pantry, 30 Chichester Rd., Loudon NH 03307-0734

Delay in Donation Letters

Everyone has been extremely generous during 2022. The way donations are processed at Loudon Food Pantry is different than most other pantries. We have an inventory system and donations are logged (tagged and written down) and put into that system. The items in a donation are given out as soon that is done. Then all the logged slips are put into our system and we value each and every item. This gives us the figures to give to donors in their donor letters.

2022 we way busier than anticipated and we fell behind. We will have donations letters out by the end of February. I will post as soon as they are in are sent. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
