Mascoma Valley Regional High School Food Pantry is OPEN!

PRESS RELEASE: Friends of Mascoma Foundation is pleased to report our school district has an "in-house" food pantry available for students in need that may be accessed BY the staff from both the High School and the Indian River Middle School.

Christine Jespersen, our High School Family and Consumer Science teacher is the Pantry Manager.  Friends of Mascoma Foundation's, "Friends Feeding Friends" Initiative expands their practice of sharing their many resources with all four of our schools. A generous donor has supplied refrigeration for this pantry, so we are able to supply fresh fruits and vegetables from Willing Hands and meats and dairy products from Price Chopper's, Fresh Rescue program. We currently are agents of the New Hampshire Food Bank and manage the Friends Feeding Friends Food Pantries in Enfield and Canaan that are open to all of our five town residents one day weekly in each location [see hours here].  We thankfully accept food and monetary donations for all of these pantries.

Currently, we would like to assist the HS pantry to be fully stocked with toiletries like:

  • toothbrushes,
  • toothpaste,
  • body wash,
  • soap,
  • feminine hygiene products,
  • cologne
  • shaving cream,
  • toilet paper, etc.

Questions or need more information?

 Mrs. Christine Jespersen, High School Consumer and Family Science Teacher and Pantry Manager.
