Because no one should go hungry on Martha’s Vineyard.


Our goal is to prevent hunger on Martha’s Vineyard. Anyone having difficulty obtaining food is eligible for Island Food Pantry assistance.

The Pantry is open Monday and Wednesday from 2 – 4pm and Saturday from 10am – noon. We are located at the United Methodist “Stone” Church at the corner of William and Church Streets in Vineyard Haven.

Who can use the Pantry?

Anyone who is not financially able to obtain the food they need may use the Pantry. If you are on Mass Health, SNAP or Fuel Assistance or are simply unable to afford groceries this month, we are here for you.  A referral note is no longer required.  We will ask that you fill out a registration form on your first visit.

How often can I visit?

Shoppers may visit every two weeks as needed. Some shoppers come less frequently depending on current needs. If you are limited in what you can take due to transportation or storage, let us know to arrange for more frequent visits.

What can I take?

Everyone who uses the Pantry has different needs that frequently change over time. If you need only a little to supplement what you have, that is what you should take. If you are in a particularly difficult time and you need more than what is recommended, let us know. We want you to take what you need. As a general guideline:

  • 1 person may take 3 reusable grocery bags of food
  • A family of 2 to 3 people may take 4-5 reusable grocery bags
  • A family of 4 or more can take 6+ bags (depending on how many you are feeding)

For any questions or assistance, leave a message on the Pantry phone 508-693-4764 or email
