The St. Peter Food Pantry in Bingham, part of Christ the King Parish, will continue to meet the needs of its clients, but with a change in the way the food is distributed. Items will now be packaged and left at the door of the pantry for pickup. The pantry, which serves residents form the communities of Bingham, Caratunk, Concord, Moscow, Moxie, and Pleasant Ridge, is open the first and third Wednesdays of the month. The adjacent thrift store is temporarily closed.
St. Anthony’s Soup Kitchen, also part of Christ the King Parish, will not be serving meals at this time. The kitchen, located in the hall at Notre Dame Church in Skowhegan, was first established in 1991, shut down for a about a year, and then reopened in 2018. It serves 50 or more residents each Thursday, also providing meals for them to take home. The meals will resume when it is safe to do so.
