Back to School and Back to Food

Fall is in the air. The kids are back to school. And, we have an urgent need to stock our shelves.

We’ve begun our 2nd and 4th Saturday food drives which are supported by many town organizations and individuals throughout the year. On Saturday, September 13 the Wakefield Marching Band took the lead and helped us collect and sort food. Please come by the Pantry and drop off your food donations.

We also have donation boxes at the Town Hall, the Police Station, Walgreens as well as the Greenwood and Lakeside Savings Banks. Our library is getting into to the mix and has set up a receptacle for non-perishable food items soon. How convenient! Drop off or pick up books and leave your groceries behind. read more

Polar Express Benefits WIFP

A check for $1000 from Nick Ansaldi, coordinator of the Wakefield Music Booster’s Polar Express, was recently presented to food pantry volunteer Rosanne Phillips.  “WIFP would like to publicly thank the Music Boosters for their support and generosity, particularly from the proceeds of their Polar Express event over the past five years,” said Rosanne.  To date, the Music Boosters have donated a total of $5000 over this period.

Well done, Music Boosters!
