Fresh Harvest Mobile Markets

For all 2020 dates in English click here and for Spanish click here

The Salem Pantry is proud to be partnering with the North Shore Community Development Coalition and Salem State University to provide mobile markets in two locations.

For Mobile Markets and Family Grocery Assistance, Salem residents are asked to bring a piece of mail with your current address or a letter from a doctor's office, a social worker's office, or any local or state agency you are currently working with to confirm that you live in Salem. 

However, we will not turn away anyone who needs food. Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

Salem Backpack Program

The Backpack Program will resume when school resumes. 


The Salem Backpack Program began in 2012 with just ten students at the Carlton Innovation School and now serves nearly 200 children at all 6 elementary schools. Every Friday of the school year, students are sent home with two breakfasts, two lunches, snacks, applesauce, juice, milk and fresh fruit.
