Montpelier Food Pantry

The Montpelier Food Pantry, located (in the basement of Trinity United Methodist Church) at 137 Main Street in Montpelier, serves emergency meals to individuals and families in the Montpelier area. Our volunteers come from across the community. Some of our clients come once a lifetime, and some return every month. Regardless of an individual’s situation, we are here to help. We believe that access to nutritious food is a basic human right.

 Summer Meals Program

Just Basics Inc has collaborated with various community organizations in past years to run a free Summer Meals Program for children 0-18 years old. This year the program is being run through the Union Elementary School. Lunches are served Monday- Friday during July and August. Any child in Montpelier or surrounding towns can enjoy a free lunch this summer.
