Haven from Hunger
In July of 2017, Citizens Inn merged with Haven from Hunger, creating one organization to better help local families and individuals leave hunger and homelessness behind.
Haven from Hunger’s work currently includes a food pantry and a community meals program at 71 Wallis Street in Peabody. Through the merger, we will continue our homelessness prevention and social service programs, while incorporating Haven from Hunger’s facility and hunger prevention programs into our operation. The merged organization will be known as Citizens Inn. The programs at 71 Wallis Street will continue to be known as Haven from Hunger.
Families and individuals struggling to put food on the table turn to Haven from Hunger for help. Our core hunger-relief programs are our food pantry and our community-meals program. Our clients come to us from Salem, Peabody, and Lynnfield.
Our food pantry provides over 5,500 individuals with fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and canned goods. We serve residents from Peabody, Salem and Lynnfield and distributed over 2 million pounds of food last year.
Our community-meals program offers guests a filling, nutritious supper in a friendly atmosphere four nights a week. Last year, we served over 15,600 meals.
