Food Donations

Acord gladly accepts donations of shelf-stable food items that have not reached their expiration or “best by” date. You can drop them off at:

  1. Hamilton Wenham Public Library, indoors during operating hours
  2. Hamilton Police Station open 24 hours a day 7 days a week
  3. If your donation is larger than 2 grocery bags you can call the pantry to schedule an appointment.

First, please check the expiration date on every food item. If a product is past its expiration or “best by” date, please dispose of it at home. 

Acord distributes food, toiletries, and household paper and cleaning products. Please donate other items to another agency better able to use them.
