In response to the coronavirus/Covid-19 illness outbreak and guidance from government officials, NNEMAP Food Pantry posted some temporary changes to our service delivery yesterday. Please review those changes and continue reading below.
PLEASE NOTE that the following service hours are CANCELLED until further notice:
Due to the short notice, we will be open for service on Saturday, March 14; however, we will not be open again on Saturday until further notice.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE!

Attention NNEMAP Food Pantry shoppers: As a precautionary measure to our valued customers, volunteers and employees relative to the Coronavirus, beginning MONDAY, MARCH 16, 2020, NNEMAP Food Pantry will begin distributing pre-filled orders of grocery items. Each order will include a variety of canned fruits, grains, proteins and a beverage. You will also receive abundant fresh fruits and vegetables. As available, you will receive eggs and meat products.
During this time, customers will be required to wait outside the pantry. Only volunteers and employees may enter the building. Please have your identification ready. You may be asked to complete a paper form for verification purposes.
In order to best protect the health of our community, we will distribute food in this manner until further notice.

The irascible Oscar Wilde once opined that, “All art is quite useless.” While we understand the importance of being earnest (see what I did there?), we respectfully disagree with Wilde on this point. In fact, we’re going in the complete opposite direction. In the bleak midwinter, you can put some color back into the world by joining us at Brush Crazy to “Paint for a Cause.”
The team at Brush Crazy has made it as easy as 1-2-3 (think of it as paint and donate by numbers!):
1. Visit Brush Crazy on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2020, show them this post or just tell them you’re painting for NNEMAP. Drop in anytime (and bring the family–it’s kid-friendly!).
2. Paint whatever item you choose (staff is there to help get you started and give you pointers along the way)
3. NNEMAP Food Pantry gets a generous portion of the proceeds as a cash donation.
You make art, NNEMAP Food Pantry gets money. THAT is useful art! Come join us on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2020 anytime between 11am and 6pm. Chase the winter blues (and Dorian Grays?) away and support NNEMAP Food Pantry. Win-win!!!
We welcome your support any time. We won’t even make you paint for it. You can always make a secure online donation here. Thank you for your support. Every donation makes a difference in someone’s life!
NNEMAP Food Pantry will be
CLOSED Saturday, May 25 and Monday, May 27, 2019
in honor of the Memorial Day holiday.
We will be open for business on Tuesday, May 28. Please have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
