Getting food on the table can be a challenge for everyone right now. 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.
  • Perishable items are delivered by the generous non-profit Willing Hands, donated by Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs, and shared by Lyme bakers.
  • 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 will fill your orders with what we have available. You may request or decline certain items.
  • Pick-up Tuesdays at 1pm, or by appointment Please come prepared with a mask and clean hands. CCL volunteers will staff the food pantry, wearing masks and gloves while working there, following safe practices. We ask the public to do the same. The food pantry is not open for “shopping”.
  • Delivery availableJust 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 seven 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. Stay safe at home, give us your list, and volunteers will safely shop and deliver your groceries to you.
  • You name it. If you have something else in mind, let us know how we can help.
