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.
Family Grocery Assistance
Groceries are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis starting at 9AM at the following pickup sites through August 2020:
Carlton Innovation School
Witchcraft Heights School
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.
