Our Services

Bringing Change to the Community


The Pantry Experience

Helping The Community

The cornerstone service of the Anchor Pantry is our in-person, shopping inspired experience.  Our members can come in and interact with our wonderful volunteers while choosing from a wide variety of food items and household necessities.


Senior Delivery Service

Paying Tribute to Our Elders

With the help of a dedicated effort from a wide network of local volunteers, we are able to, on a weekly basis, deliver pre-packed pantry bags that are loaded with nutritious food options and helpful, everyday household goods to our beloved senior community.


The Anchor's Response to Covid-19

Providing Much Needed Stability

The idea of Anchor Pantry was formed just a few short weeks before the outbreak of the Covid-19 Pandemic.   Even though we were far from ready to open, once news of shut downs came out on March 16, 2020, we felt as though it was our responsibility to provide as much aid as possible to the most vulnerable members of our community.  Since the outbreak in March, Anchor, along with the support of our communities, has provided 13,000 pounds of food to those members of the community most affected by this life-altering event. While we all hope and pray that this pandemic come to an end, we at the Anchor are solely focused on fulfilling our pledge to the community and providing as much stability as we can in these unheralded and uncertain times.
