About the Greater  Plymouth Food Warehouse

More and more people throughout the South Shore are making trade-offs between paying for food and paying for other necessities like heat for their homes.

Given this startling trend of growing food insecurity and hunger, it is clear there is a direct need for more quality, nutritious food for this region’s low-income individuals and families.

In the fall of 2002, SSCAC formed the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse with the goal of getting more nutritious food to more hungry people in the most cost-effective way through coordinated food pick-up, transport, storage and distribution.
