Monthly dinner schedule


The safety and well-being of our Upper Valley community is LISTEN Community Services’ utmost priority. In light of COVID-19, we are following advice by health professionals and other authorities, and taking many precautions to keep our customers, clients and staff safe. This includes increased sanitation of all of our facilities.

Please be advised that starting on Monday, March 16, the community dinners served in White River Junction will only be available on a “to go” basis and our dining hall will not be open for diners to congregate. From 5-5:30pm on Monday-Saturdays in White River Junction, we welcome anyone to come by and pick up a meal that will be packaged for you to take away. Volunteer cook teams will still be helping to make this vital assistance possible. The Monday dinner in Canaan is cancelled until further notice.

For almost 50 years, LISTEN has been on the frontline in our community to provide vital support for neighbors who are facing crisis. We are currently assessing our ability to meet an anticipated increase in demand for our food pantry as well as housing and heating assistance for community members in need. All charitable contributions to support these direct services are needed at this time. Thank you for helping us to be able to respond as quickly as possible.

Also, as of today, LISTEN’s stores are open for business as usual and we are still taking donations of gently-used items. We will continue to keep you posted with any changes to the operations of our programs and stores.

A community is only as safe as its most vulnerable populations. And the character of the Upper Valley has always reflected a strong support for all of our neighbors, especially in times of distress. From all of us at LISTEN, we are grateful for you.
