Amherst Street operates a food pantry and sends home backpacks full of food to families in need every Friday. These backpacks contain healthy food items to sustain families through the weekend and holiday vacation weeks.
If you are an Amherst Street family in need of extra food, please contact Principal Jenn Scarpati at 594-4385.
If you would like to make a donation to the program, we accept food or monetary donations. Monetary donations can be made out to Amherst Street PTO and mailed to the school at 71 Amherst Street, Nashua, NH 03064. We accept food donations at the school as well, with the following being our most needed items: Pasta, sauce, peanut butter, jelly, beans, tuna, rice, cereal, mac n cheese, soup, canned fruits & veggies.
