DID YOU KNOW that you can donate non-perishable food items or checks at Marlborough Elementary School every day during working hours (school year 8am-4pm: summer 8:30 am-3pm). Under their “Families Feeding Families” program, the administration, staff and students maintain a donation box to support the food bank. This generous program allows donors the freedom of stopping in at the school office anytime the school is open to make a donation, or sending in items with students on the bus. Special thanks to teacher Ellen Eastwood, the administration, other faculty and students.
You can also donate non-perishable goods at the box at Town Hall during their posted hours, and at The Shoppes at Marlborough Country Barn, 45 No. Main Street, Marlborough.
The Food Bank managers and volunteers thank these partners for their generous support.
The Food Bank of Marlborough follows the closing schedule of Elmer Thienes (Marlborough) Elementary school. If Elmer Thienes is closed, the Food Bank will be closed.
If unsure of the status of the Food Bank, call 860-295-6008 during open hours. If the Food Bank is open, a volunteer will answer the phone. If there is no answer, the Food Bank is closed. The open hours are Tuesdays 10 am to noon and 3:30 to 5:30 pm, and the first Saturday of the month from 10 am to noon (for donations only).
Four volunteer slots are available each Tuesday during our afternoon hours and for the first Saturday of each month when we are open for donations. The new procedure for high school volunteers to sign up is on the “High School Volunteers” page on this website.
