PHILLIPS – The Phillips Food Pantry, located in the basement of the Methodist Church, will open from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, March 28. After that, it will be open from 9 a.m. to noon on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month.

Those receiving food should bring their own boxes or bags. The pantry is open to residents of Phillips, Avon and Madrid. Proof of residence is needed, and a recent electric bill is suggested.
