March is Fundraising Month!
The Grafton Food Bank has been serving the Grafton community for over 20 years. Our mission is to provide food, basic personal care products and pet food to our residents who have fallen on difficult times. Despite the abundance of goods donated by the community, the Food Bank must still purchase many items to provide for the 120 families that we currently serve. We are an all-volunteer run organization and over 95% of your cash donations go directly to Grafton residents in need. Please consider making a donation today. Donations are tax deductible and can be made via PayPal or GoFundMe by clicking on the buttons below.
Donations can also be made by sending a check to:
Grafton Food Bank/Friends of Grafton, Inc.
PO Box 324
Grafton, MA 01519
Thank you for your support!
If you are a resident of Grafton, Massachusetts in need of food, you are eligible to access the Grafton Food Bank on our regular distribution days, or in an emergency, call to make arrangements. You may use the food bank once a month. Download the Application for Assistance and bring it to the Food Bank with proof of residency (copy of a current utility bill, lease agreement, letter from your landlord, or copy of your license) during the Food Bank distribution hours. Applications are also available at the sign-in desk during distribution days and in the corridor outside the Food Bank door. Every September, we request that you give us updated household information.
The renewal application must be returned by October 31, 2020 to remain a client in 2021.
We also assist our Clients with utility bills if they are in danger of disconnection. Clients must contact the utility and set up a budget, payment, or collection plan prior to requesting assistance from us. See the links below or check your utility bill for financial help information.
We expect that you will also seek other assistance that is available, such as SNAP, SMOC or other outside sources.
