We're happy to share that in tandem with increased vaccination rates, the Covid rates in Lawrence have dropped low enough for B&R to open to the public on a limited basis.
In addition to ongoing community food outreach, Grab & Go Meals will be distributed from the front porch, Monday-Thursday & Saturdays from 4 to 6 PM. Emergency Pantry Orders will also be available Monday - Thursday & Saturdays 11:30-3:30. We ask that you please call ahead to 978-681-8768 to allow at least 2 hours for us to prepare your order. We will be able to provide up to three days of food for each member in the household.
If you'd like to donate food, call 978.681.8768 or email Rina Krah Be sure to  visit us on Facebook for regular updates on outreach activities and community resources.
