Neighbors in Need Food Pantry

Neighbors in Need operates six food pantries open to the public strategically located in neighborhoods throughout Lawrence, Methuen, and South Church in Andover.  They provide food for over 1,800 families every week- and over 500,000 meals last year. 47% of those served are children under the age of 18 and 16% are elders.

Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the food pantry at South Church has been meeting outside. We are looking for volunteers to help us welcome our neighbors back inside the building.
