The Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is Open:

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
ARRIVE EARLY!

The Food Pantry distributes both perishable and non-perishable foods to individuals and families requesting assistance.

Individuals and families are eligible to receive perishable items such as meat, eggs, bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, and non-perishable items such as canned goods, cereal and pasta.

In addition to the basic foods, we often have “extras” such as pastries, crackers, raisins and trail mix which we offer to clients.

There are many different activities required to make the Food Pantry run smoothly.

  • Volunteers help with client intake, filling bags, redistributing bulk foods, stocking shelves, sorting donations or assisting with record keeping.
  • We purchase food from a local wholesaler, obtain items from The Greater Boston Food Bank, and accept donations from individuals and companies.
  • Similar to a regular retail grocer, these items must be stocked and rotated to assure that our clients receive the freshest food we have available.

Requirements:

  • On every visit, you must provide a picture ID and proof of residency, such as a utility bill or rent receipt.
  • On your first visit, you must provide identification and proof of residency for every member of your household – children and adults. A picture ID is required for the adult who will represent the household on each visit.

Donations

Non-perishable food donations are accepted Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For large donations, contact us to arrange a time.

Thank You!
