The Winthrop Food Pantry serves residents of Winthrop and Wayne, Maine and we are open every Thursday from 1-2:30 PM.  In addition, we are open the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 5-6:30 PM.

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