The Grafton Food Bank has been assisting Grafton residents for more than 25 years. First formed by longtime Grafton residents Maureen Clark, Nancy Hazen, Doris Metivier and Dolores Ward, they worked together with local churches, schools, community groups, businesses and residents to organize countless food drives. All Municipal Center employees at the time, they would often coordinate these efforts during work breaks, lunch hours and after work hours. Maureen, Nancy, Dolores, and Doris successfully petitioned the town to dedicate space to create a formal Food Bank inside the Municipal Center where it remains today. Over the years the Food Bank has grown to meet the increased need of those experiencing food insecurity. Thanks to the generosity of so many through food and monetary donations, the Food Bank has been able to continue meeting this need with the assistance of dedicated volunteers who remain committed to fulfilling its mission.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer run organization and depend solely on the generous support of our community. Over 95% of all the monetary donations, and 100% of the food donations go directly to Grafton residents in need. Our non-profit identification number is EIN: 04-3214054.
