Each November, Nauset Disposal organizes our annual food drive, Curb Hunger, to help those in need in our community. Unfortunately, Curb Hunger is going to look a lot different this year due to COVID. This is a tradition that we love, as we get to give back to our community and provide our customers with an easy way to donate non-perishable goods to our local food pantries. There are still many opportunities to help support these organizations for the upcoming holiday season. If you’re in a position to help your local food pantry, please do!

Food Insecurity on the Cape traditionally runs around 10% or roughly 23,000 people, that number has risen during the Pandemic and will continue to increase as residents are laid off due to the seasonality of the Cape.
- Due to the Pandemic, the Family Pantry is not accepting any food donations at this time.
- PSA: The Family Pantry is open and accepting new clients. All barriers to access the pantry have been removed, so documentation is not required to register. The process is simple and a new client can receive food at the time they register and they can then shop every 14 days.
