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, Community Connections, Montpelier Public Schools and the Washington Central Supervisory Union are collaborating this summer to run a free Summer Meals Program for children 0-18 years old. Lunches are served Monday- Friday from 11:30-12:30 beginning July 5 and continuing through August 11, 2017 at the Main Street Middle School in Montpelier. Any child in Montpelier or surrounding towns can enjoy a free lunch this summer and receive a free book courtesy of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Food is provided by the East Montpelier Elementary School and the program is staffed by volunteers.
