Every gift makes a difference!
In 2022, we distributed 163,690 pounds (136,000 meals) to our neighbors, which is up 52% from the previous year. 76% of the food and household goods were purchased using generous donations from community businesses and individuals, and 24% of the items we distributed were donated. To help us continue to provide this level of service, please consider making a donation. We truly appreciate the tremendous support we receive!

Did You Know?
We purchase about 9,000 lbs. of food from the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) monthly. Our funds go much further when we are able to buy through the GBFB. Unfortunately, not all items are available through the GBFB and we have to shop locally each week to fill in the gaps (ex. cereal, pasta sauce, rice & pasta sides, Mac & cheese, mayo, snack items, diapers, wipes, paper towels, toilet paper).
We are a 100% choice pantry. This means our clients have a full shopping experience when they visit our pantry, and they are able to choose from a wide variety of items every week so that they go home with exactly the groceries their family needs. We do not offer any pre-packed bags because we know that no two families have the same needs, and we also understand the importance of the dignity of choice.
