The Cape Cod Hunger Network (CCHN) is a growing coalition of organizations, including Cape food pantries and state and local agencies that help coordinate food security programs. The Hunger Network identifies needs on the Cape and then looks for ways to address that need through its membership. For example, the Network provides shared freezer storage for pantries who might not have the capacity to hold the product they need. The Hunger Network also is an outlet through which advocacy efforts are channeled and works directly with the Greater Boston Food Bank in regard to legislative imperatives.
The Cape Cod Hunger Network provides a guide to all the local pantries. Please click on the "Food Pantries" tab above for a complete listing. We encourage you to support your local pantry through your "time, talent, and/or treasures" as we all try to eliminte hunger on Cape Cod. During Covid-19, please contact your local pantry to determine what they are able to accept. Many pantries are not accepting food donations from the general public. All are accepting financial and volunteer support.
If you are in need of food, please see our list of food pantries on Cape Cod. Many of the pantries have removed documentation requirements during the Covid-19 crisis. If you are struggling to put food on your table, please reach out to your local pantry. It is a simple process, at a time when many are facing food insecurity for the first time in their lives.
