FARMINGTON — Located in Mallett School, the RSU #9 Food Pantry welcomes all families with a child in ANY one of the Mt. Blue RSU #9 schools. The intent is to assist families so that everyone has reliable access to healthy food.

This year we are hoping to expand our outreach. If your family could benefit from a box of free food monthly, please stop by to grab a pre-filled box with a variety of fresh, frozen, and self-stable food. This curbside pickup is offered the 3rd Wednesday each month outside of the Mallett School Cafeteria from 3:30 – 5 pm (February & April dates are TBD due to school vacations).

Please note: anyone can pick up… we are not the food police. All families are anonymous and confidential. Whether you just need a little extra help this month or you’d like to become a monthly family… stop by and give us a try. We’d love to have you!

“The program is not an RSU #9 sponsored activity, however, this flyer is being distributed as a community service. All costs associated with this flyer are paid for by a grant from the Good Shepherd Food Bank.”
