Beverly Bootstraps to hold September Drive Thru Food Drive

Beverly, Mass (Sept) – Beverly Bootstraps will hold another Drive Thru Food Drive on Saturday, September 12, from 10am – 2pm. To restock the Food Pantry shelves after the summer, Beverly Bootstraps typically hosts a Food Drive at a local grocery store. However, with the pandemic continuing on, and to keep the community safe, they will be repeating the Drive Thru format that they tested in June and was a huge success.  The need for food assistance is still great with the pandemic and unemployment effecting so many.

To donate, enter the Beverly Bootstraps parking lot through the Wallis Street entrance. With curbside drop off, you just pull up and pop your trunk. Their staff will get your food out for you.

The most needed food items are:

-Peanut Butter
-Tuna
-Canned chicken
-Soup
-Pasta
-Sauce
-Rice
-Canned veggies
-Canned beans
-Mac and cheese
-Canned fruit
-Cereal
-Kids snacks (individual packs)

If you are unable to attend the Drive Thru Food Drive,  please check our website (BeverlyBootstraps.org) for other ways to donate food.

Beverly Bootstraps provides critical resources to families and individuals so they may achieve self-sufficiency. We offer emergency and long-term assistance including: access to food, housing stability, adult and youth education, counseling and advocacy. We are community funded and supported.
