Walter Cavanaugh Food Pantry

Next Food Bank: April 15th


The Medford Lakes Lions Club operates the Walter Cavanaugh Food Bank for our surrounding community. We provide canned goods, household needs, and personal care items to needy families in the greater Medford area (including Medford Lakes, Medford, Shamong, Tabernacle, and Vincentown).


The Food Bank is open on the third Saturday of every month from 9:00am to 11:00am. In addition to our monthly program, our Christmas Charities gives a complete holiday dinner for each family as well as toys and a new pair of shoes for every child under 17.


If you are interested in help out with this enduring Lions mission...helping make a positive impact in our community, drop us a note and we will connect you with the mission chairperson. Additionally, if you are involved in an a group that would like to partner with us, we would love to talk with you!
