Catherine's Cupboard Food Pantry announces its grand reopening at the Standish Town Hall beginning on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. The pantry, which formerly operated in the Steep Falls Fire Station, has new quarters in an addition recently built onto the town hall on Route 35. The relocation to a larger space will allow the pantry to store more food onsite and serve more families.
Saint Joseph's College started the food pantry in April 2008 with help from the town of Standish and it has grown to serving 100 families per month. Catherine's Cupboard operates each Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and is open to all Cumberland County residents for monthly food pick-up.
