Soup Kitchen

Located at the Town Hall

Due to the current economy and the price of gas the Soup Kitchen is suspending operation. The Food Bank will be open on Fridays (12:00 to 2:00) only for Palmyra residents to pick up food.
We no longer have the resources to provide for residents from other towns.
