Hanover Food Pantry

It is the goal of the Hanover Food Pantry to serve members of our community during times of need.  We are here to help those families in crisis with understanding and compassion.

Please take the time to read the information contained in this brochure so that you can better understand our procedures and guidelines.


Anyone in need of food from the town of Hanover or who attends a Church in Hanover may come to the Pantry once in 30 days. People in need from outside the town may come if there is no available food pantry in their town, or is in a critical situation.


We will provide a 3-day supply of food appropriate for each family based on their size and needs.  Our pantry shelves generally include toiletries, paper products, canned meat and soup, pasta, cereal, peanut butter & jelly, coffee, tea, rice, canned vegetables and snacks


The basement of the First Baptist Church in Hanover at the corner of Webster St. and Main St.


The Hanover Food Pantry doors open to service our clients every Wednesday from 12:30 – 2:30 P.M.


The Pantry is made possible through the hard work and dedication of a core group of volunteers from five participating churches and the Hanover Woman’s Club, Jrs.


Clients are asked to complete a numbered application form at each visit.  This information provides us with family size and composition so that we can make appropriate selections to meet your needs.

We will request an ID in order to confirm your residency in Hanover.

Clients are served in numerical order and every effort is made to fulfill any special need or request.   Many clients provide us with a list of items which we find helpful.

We provide each family with a small gift card to a local grocery store so that they can purchase some perishable items not stocked on our shelves.
