Winthrop Food Pantry

The Winthrop Food Pantry is located at 10 Cross Road in Winthrop, Maine. We serve residents of Winthrop and Wayne, Maine.

We are open every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 – 2:30. In addition, we are open for evening hours on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 5:00-6:30. We serve residents of Winthrop and Wayne.

We are operating with curbside pickup only.  You do not need to call ahead.  We will be giving out prepared boxes of shelf-stable food along with bread, fresh produce, eggs, cheese, and frozen meat.  Diapers and feminine care will also be provided.  Kids Packs are available for pickup every week.

Please follow the signs to get in the service line. Stay in your vehicle and we will meet with you. When it’s your turn you will pull up to the outside check-in table.  We will load an outside table with your boxes and bags, and you will also have the opportunity to choose any miscellaneous items we have. 

Our Location

Thanks to the help of many volunteers, the Winthrop Food Pantry has moved to our new location in the Winthrop Office Center at 10 Cross Road. Cross Road is directly across Route 202 from the entrance to the Winthrop Transfer Station.

Our old location on High Street served us well for over 30 years, but our new space is nearly double the size and allows us to more efficiently serve our customers.

In the event you find yourself out of food before our Thursday service day, please know that we keep emergency food boxes at the Winthrop Police Department and the Wayne Town Office. You can just go there and ask for a box. The emergency food boxes contain a variety of shelf stable goods that will help you get by until you can come to the Food Pantry on the next Thursday.


If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 207-377-3332 or email us at winthropfoodpantry@gmail.com.  You may also contact us through Facebook messenger, but please be aware that if you message us on a Thursday, we may not see your message until the next day.  If you need help that day, please call.
