Feeding Our Neighbors
With dignity while promoting health, opportunity, and hope
Serving Western Knox County
Founded in 1991 through a service project at the Come Spring School, Come Spring Food Pantry is currently located at 27 Common Road in Union, Maine
In 2021, Come Spring Food Pantry relocated from the Thompson Community Center to our present location at 27 Common Road, as to better advance our organization’s goal of feeding our neighbors with dignity, while promoting health, opportunity, and hope.
Today, Come Spring Food Pantry serves the towns of Union, Appleton, Washington, Searsmont, Warren, Hope, and South Hope. Our recipients include young families, elderly couples, veterans, and anyone who is struggling with food security: no one is turned away.
Come Spring Food Pantry distributes food from our parking lot offering “Curbside Pickup” on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of every month from 10am to 12pm. We are also open on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 5-7pm.
Recipients receive pre-packaged bags and boxes which will include a variety of groceries with choices of other groceries and seasonal choices of fresh vegetables. Current CDC guidance to food pantries does not allow us to welcome recipients inside for indoor shopping, but as soon as we are able, we will open the pantry for indoor shopping.
Come Spring Food Pantry Needs YOU!
