To mark it’s 300th anniversary, the Union Congregational Church in North Reading is giving an 1,100 sq.ft. historic building to the North Reading Food Pantry to serve as a convenient and much needed home! (Currently, the Food Pantry borrows a 435 sq. ft. space at the Town Hall, which does not meet its needs.)
To fund the building's renovation and prepare it for occupancy, the Food Pantry and the 300th Anniversary Committee have teamed up and launched a $220,000 capital campaign. Learn more about how you can support the NRFP HOME Fund.
All funds raised will go directly toward the NR Food Pantry. Scroll to learn more about how important this new home will be for our community!
