Putney Foodshelf

The Putney Foodshelf began in 2006 as a local, grass-root response to a growing awareness that many of our neighbors were hungry. The Foodshelf has gone from providing supplemental food for a handful of families to regularly serving over thirty five families weekly. Our mission: To provide supplemental healthy food for area people in need.

The Foodshelf is open Tuesdays 6–7pm and Saturdays 9–10am at the Putney Community Center, 10 Christian Square [side ramp door].
