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.
