WaysMeet Food Pantry
You may have noticed our DONATE FOOD sign outside our church. Within our congregation, we have always collected food items for a local food pantry. During COVID, we opened up the donations up to our community - and we continue to be amazed at your generosity. There is a brown deck box by our front steps. Items put in the box are taken into the church and weekly we take everything to the pantry. Currently the pantry is run by the Waysmeet Center at UNH and serves Durham, Lee, Madbury, and Newmarket.
Suggested Donations (non perishable food only)
peas, corn (canned)
mixed veggies (canned)
canned beans (kidney, pinto, navy, black,
