Camden Life Center Outdoor Food Pantry Installed
The Camden Life Center at 20 Main Street has installed a small outdoor cupboard that houses a brand-new outdoor food pantry. Similar in style to the “Little Free Library” book lending cabinets available in towns across the country, the pantry will provide 24/7 access to non-perishable food items, hygiene products and other essentials to any members of the community who may need them.

The close of July brought us a wonderful gift from the Camden Central School Districts “Construction Crew” from Camp-Sum-More-Fun. Students in Mr. Calkins group built us the most amazing outdoor food pantry box!
