Size Does Matter

Loudon Food Pantry receives food from the New Hampshire Food Bank and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). To receive this food, we sign contracts. Within those contract it is stated that we can not break down any large packaging of food into smaller packaging (no matter who it is received from). Even if the packaging inside is complete with labeling. For example. If we receive a 20 lb. bag of flour, we can not break it down to 4 – 5 lb. bags. Also, if we receive a large box of cereal that contains two bags of cereal inside, we must give out the whole box and cannot separate it.

The reasoning behind the “do not break down packaging” rule is allergies as well as recall information placed on labelling that helps us track down problem foods. Even though some items do have labelling on the packaging inside (i.e. packages of crackers within larger packaging), it is simpler to say nothing gets broken down then to try and explain what can and what can’t.

So, when donating, please keep this in mind. We can feed more people in need with average size items, than we can we large or oversize items. Size really does matter!

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.
