Gilmanton Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News


Correction:  Last week, we incorrectly stated our Saturday hours.  To clarify, we are open from 10 a.m. -  2 p.m. on Saturday and 3 - 6 p.m. on Wednesday.


The Food Pantry also sponsors a program that we call “Adopt A Child”.  This is a program where we attempt to provide needed winter clothing as well as toys or age appropriate gifts for Christmas.  A person or family can “adopt” one child or an entire family, or just provide some toys toward the program.  If this interests you, please contact Bethany Lavin at 267-1934.


All during the month of December the Gilmanton Thrift Shop will feature our ever popular bag sale.  This would be a great opportunity to spruce up the winter wardrobe or maybe even do some Christmas shopping.  Fill an entire bag for only $7.  You would be surprised as to how much you can get in to one of our paper shopping bags.


We will still be collecting food items for Christmas baskets.  If you were unable to donate for Thanksgiving, but would still like an opportunity to help your neighbors, Christmas is almost here.  We try to provide a little extra at Christmas to help families provide nutritious meals and snacks while the children are on School vacation.


Items included in our Christmas food baskets include stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, canned vegetables and fruit, bottled juice, sugar, coffee, cocoa, breakfast muffin mix, pickles, olives, cake mixes, and frosting.  Donations of money to purchase butter/margarine, milk, eggs, fresh fruit, potatoes, and onions are greatly appreciated.  Turkeys or ham are the highlight of our holiday baskets, thus a donation of a turkey or a ham would be a most generous donation and greatly appreciated.


Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at the Academy building, the Year Round Library, and at the Pantry during open hours.  Monetary donations may be brought to the Pantry or mailed to  Post Office Box 16, Gilmanton, N. H. 03237.


Gilmanton Food Pantry & Thrift Shop is an outreach program of the Gilmanton Community Church.  Visit us on Facebook at:


Hours:  Monday, closed, Wednesday, 3 – 6 pm and Saturday, 10 am – 2 pm.
