Chester-Newell FISH Foundation
We are an independent 501(c)(3) organization relying solely on the altruism of the community. The pantry was founded in 1972 and is housed in the basement of Sacred Heart Center.
Our pantry is open on Saturday mornings from 10:00-10:30 for clients to come and pick up their bags of groceries. These clients call an answering service (also run by a volunteer) from Monday -Thursday. Volunteers meet to pack the bags either on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. When the clients arrive, they are handed their prepackaged bags and receive a $10 gift card to buy milk, bread, etc.
