Open to all Carver residents, the pantry is stocked with such items as cereal, peanut butter, jelly, pasta, and tomato sauce, thanks to donations from residents and the local Shaw’s supermarket. The pantry’s regular weekday hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m. Food donations may be brought to the senior center or to the town library.
