Neighbors in Need has fed the poor and Hungry of Greater Lawrence for 30 years. We give food to those in need without judgment, respecting the dignity of each individual. All food, formula, diapers, clothing, and household items are provided free of charge to those who request them. Access to good food is a challenge to many of the poor and hungry in Lawrence. Neighbors in Need feeds 500 families each week at our 11 Food Pantries strategically located in the neighborhoods, providing food to most Lawrence residents within walking distance of their homes. Our Elder Pantries provide food in the common rooms of two low-income elder housing projects-Valebrook and 65 Union in the North Common area. We deliver to 21 disabled homebound residents of Windsor House (a rooming house operated by the Commonwealth Land Trust) and the Department of Mental Health (DMH); and to the YWCA Fina House providing food to 26 teen mothers and families with a history of domestic violence. In 2011, NIN provided 370,000 pounds of food to the poor and hungry of Greater Lawrence--500,000 meals to over 3,000 different families. Since 1983 Neighbors in Need has distributed over 6 million pounds of food.
