Weymouth Food Pantry gets donations after catalytic converter theft

WEYMOUTH — With the help of several donations, the Weymouth Food Pantry hopes to get the box truck used for its mobile “pop up” pantry fixed in the next two weeks after its catalytic converter was stolen.

Pamela Denholm, executive director of the Weymouth Food Pantry, said the 18-foot truck was parked outside the pantry’s warehouse in Rockland when the converter was stolen earlier this month.

The truck is used almost daily for food pick-up and delivery, and is critical to the operation of the pantry’s mobile distribution model, Denholm said. Unlike many brick and mortar pantries on the South Shore, Weymouth Food Pantry provides groceries to those in need through a series of weekly pop-up events.
