This Thanksgiving, WCOD is partnering with local organizations right here on the Cape to help fight food insecurity.
Family Pantry of Cape Cod
Founded in 1989, Family Pantry of Cape Cod is a non-profit, non-denominational organization, staffed by over 650 volunteers, a full time executive director, warehouse manager and thrift store manager along with a part time office manager, assistant store manager and program manager.
The main Pantry is housed in a large warehouse on Queen Anne Road in Harwich, MA and in 2016 the Pantry expanded to include the Healthy Meals in Motion Mobile Pantry, serving the lower Cape. The Family Pantry runs a satellite pantry on the Cape Cod Community College Campus where students, staff, faculty and day care parents are served and welcomed.
The Family Pantry partners with the Greater Boston Food Bank and acts as a cross dock facility for the 28 pantries/soup kitchens on the Cape and Islands. Each month an additional four tractor trailer loads of food are brought to the Pantry and distributed to the various pantries across the Cape.
