First Congregational Church in Stoneham/God’s Helping Hand Food Pantry
The First Congregational Church in Stoneham/God’s Helping Hand Food Pantry is a non-profit, volunteer organization with a mission to provide emergency food supplies to Stoneham residents who need a helping hand.
If you are a Stoneham resident and are in need of food, you can receive assistance from the FCCS/God’s Helping Hand Food Pantry, regardless of your religious affiliation, if any. The Food Pantry stocks non-perishable foods, some household supplies and toiletries, and a limited supply of frozen and refrigerated items such as cheese, eggs, and frozen meats.
You may visit the pantry once a month, by appointment, to select groceries you know will be used by your household. (Don’t forget to bring your reusable shopping bags!) The pantry is open each Tuesday, and you can schedule your monthly appointment by calling the church office at 781-438-0097 between 8:30—2:30 Monday through Friday.
When visiting the pantry for the first time, you must provide a photo ID and proof of your residency in Stoneham. A recent bill or lease agreement with your name and Stoneham address displayed will be sufficient.
The Food Pantry is located on the lower level of the First Congregational Church. The entrance door is on the Church Street side of the building (across from the Stoneham Common), at the front of the church, down a short flight of stairs.
If there is inclement weather and the Stoneham Public Schools are closed, the Food Pantry will also close.
