Getting food on the table can be a challenge for everyone sometimes. The Lyme Food Pantry can be a piece of the puzzle.

Currently stocked at the Lyme Congregational Church, the Lyme Food Pantry is sustained by volunteers and generous donations to the CCL Jenks Fund.

  • Pantry items include supplemental non-perishable foods, like pasta and sauce; canned tuna, chicken, soups, vegetables and beans; mac & cheese, cereal, applesauce, and healthy snacks.
  • Fresh foods are delivered by the generous non-profit Willing Hands, donated by Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs, and shared by Lyme bakers. They’re displayed farmers market style, so you can choose your items.
  • Treats! We often have special items to share, and if you ask we’ll do our best to get what you’re looking for.
  • Pre-order for yourself or refer someone you know at 603-795-0603 or help@cclyme.org.We will fill your orders with what we have available. You may request or decline certain items.
  • Pick-up Tuesdays at 1pm, or by appointment CCL volunteers staff the food pantry following safe practices. We ask the public to do the same.
  • Delivery available. Just let us know when you contact us.

Are meals a bit of a challenge for you or someone you know, but the Food Pantry isn’t the right answer?

If you have been busy, stressed, or strapped for cash, we’d love to help.

  • Home-made meals, prepared by Lyme cooks, may provide some relief. A joint effort between the Lyme Congregational Church Health Ministry’s Meals for Neighbors program and CCL, we can provide single meals or serve as a bridge for a couple of particularly challenging weeks.
  • Home-delivered meals from the Grafton County Senior Citizens Council – up to five hot meals a week to anyone over 60 who could use the help, as well as others in need.
  • Lyme Country Store gift cards are available, thanks the The Utility Club of Lyme and the CCL Jenks Fund.
  • Local restaurant gift cards or deliveries. Through the Jenks Fund, we can offer a meal at a local restaurant; and if you just need a delivery, volunteers can do the pick-up for you, with some advance notice.
  • Grocery shopping. Give us your list, and volunteers will shop and deliver your groceries to you.
  • You name it. If you have something else in mind, let us know how we can help.
