The Stoneham Food Pantry is seeking nonperishable food and toiletries to help local families in need. Most in need are men’s deodorant, coffee, grape jelly (including sugar-free), and canned beets. The food pantry is housed in the First Congregational Church, 1 Church St. It is managed and staffed by volunteers and is open on Tuesdays, by appointment only. New clients must be Stoneham residents. To arrange a donation, or for more information, contact the church office at 781-438-0097.
