People are often surprised to hear that food insecurity is a serious issue on Nantucket. WIth the seasonal economy, it can be particularly challenging in the late winter and spring months. The Nantucket Food Pantry is accepting donations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3-6 PM at their 10 Washington Street location in Town. Please consider donating unexpired packaged food. There is also a drop-off bin located inside at the front of the mid-island Stop & Shop for non-perishable items.
