For 28 Years
Sharing is Our Story
Serving the towns of Southwest Harbor, Tremont, and Mt. Desert,
The Westside Food Pantry continues to put caring into practice. Anyone who comes to the Pantry is asked the same first question: "Are you a neighbor? Do you live among us?" That's it, nothing more. If you live here that's all the Pantry has to know. This is the place where caring lives and gives.
Around here we don't conduct "means testing " or perform a "needs assessment." The simplest way to show that we care is to respond to the neighbor standing right in front of us.
The Westside Food Pantry receives simple donations in the form of money, volunteered time, a fund raising effort, an exchange of a kind word between neighbors on distribution Sundays and these turn into help where our neighbors need it.
Simply put: Caring lives here.
