Barre Bucks
The Barre Food Pantry relies heavily on donations from people and organizations in our community to help supply food for distribution. During the year, several local groups sponsor food drives to support our efforts. If you or your group can help by organizing a food drive, please contact director David Petrovick at 978-355-4519 for more information.
