Hilltown Food Pantry
The Hilltown Food Pantry has been serving the northern Hampshire County Hilltowns since 1990.
Located in Goshen, the Pantry is a program of the Northampton Survival Center, and serves eligible residents of Chesterfield, Cummington, Middlefield, Peru, Plainfield, Goshen, Haydenville, Huntington, Westhampton, Williamsburg, and Worthington.
The Pantry is located at 40 Main Street in Goshen, at the rear entrance to the Goshen Town Offices building.
From that location, over 350 individuals, representing over 150 families, share in the monthly distribution of emergency supplemental foods. Distributions take place every Wednesday from 1 – 3 pm, with extended hours from 1 – 6 pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
