Independently run for over 32 years.

The oldest and largest all-volunteer food pantry in Newton, MA, the Newton Food Pantry has been run independently by volunteers since 1983.

Over 700 individuals served per month

Every month, more than 750 Newton residents rely on the food and personal care products we provide free—at our pantry location, via home delivery, and in partnership with other local nonprofits.
