About Us

Families struggling to put food on the table turn to Haven from Hunger for help.

Our core hunger-relief programs are our food pantry and our community-meals program.

Our clients include working families trying to make ends meet, elders scraping by on limited incomes, and individuals trying to get their lives back on track. They come to us from Salem, Peabody, and Lynnfield.

Food Pantry

Our food pantry provides over 1,800 households with fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, diary, and canned goods. Last year, we distributed enough food for close to 600,000 meals.

Community-Meals Program

Our community-meals program offers guests a filling, nutritious supper in a friendly atmosphere four nights a week. Last year, we served over 9,000 suppers.

Summer Meals for Kids

In addition, we provide free summer meals to low-income children. This year, we served close to 4,000 lunches to children in need.
