New Client Resources

Welcome to the Yarmouth Food Pantry! We distribute food twice a week, with additional distribution hours scheduled on the second and fourth Friday of the month, as well as the third Saturday of the month.

Once a month, a family or individual can shop items throughout the pantry, with the amount of food dependent on the number of family members. Additionally, clients can return once a month for a “meat only” distribution.

New clients may register during distribution hours.
