The New Horizons food pantry is available for people residing in Manchester who are suffering extreme financial hardship.
Families and individuals can utilize the pantry one time per month and receive pre-packed groceries based on the number of individuals residing in the household. Choices of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and bakery items are also available based on family size.
In addition to utilizing the pantry one time per month for the large food distribution, a bread line is open following the pantry distribution times when clients using the Pantry can come and get bakery and perishable items. Pantry clients may access the bread line as many times per month as they need to.
The pantry is open for food distribution on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:00 p.m. through 1:00 p.m. as well as Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
The bread line is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. while quantities last.
First time clients accessing the food pantry need to bring current photo identification, proof of their residence in Manchester, proof of income (pay stub, earnings statement or bank statement), birth certificates for any children residing in the household, and Social Security cards for adults residing in the household.
The food pantry relies largely upon donated food items. Many churches, businesses, schools, supermarkets and individuals consistently support the pantry in this way.
