Our Place Services

Our Place Drop-In Center has been serving the community surrounding Bellows Falls, Vermont for twenty-eight years.  We are a community meal site, food pantry and social services resources for hundreds of people each year. Our email is ourplace@sover.net .

Due to the public health crisis caused by Covid 19 we are no longer serving meals in our dining room. But our employees continue to prepare delicious and  nourishing meals with fresh food that is either donated or purchased from a variety of sources including local markets and farms, UNFI and the Vermont Foodbank.  Meals are packaged and provided through the window in the front of our building.  We also serve as a place to ask for information, assistance navigating the social service system or help to solve a problem. The food pantry is open four days a week and offers a selection of free groceries each month to an average of 140 different families.

In additions to the families and individuals who access the food pantry and meals at Our Place, we deliver more than 40 bags of assorted groceries each month to seniors and disabled people in our service area from Rockingham to Athens and south to Westminster. The families we serve are not always the same. Some visit the food pantry once or twice a year when there is an unexpected expense or loss of wages. Other families need supplemental food every in order to have enough food to nourish themselves and their children.

On a weekly basis, Our Place is open:   Weekdays except Thursday from 8:00 until 4:00.  Meals are currently packaged as TO GO meals Breakfast is served 9:30-10:30 a.m. and lunch from 11:30-12:30. All are welcome!

The Our Place food pantry is open: Weekdays except Thursday   9:00 a.m. – 4 p.m. We do ask for information about your household but do not require any proof of need for our help,
