Indepedently 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 800 individuals served per month

Every month, more than 800 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.

One in eight households in Newton

Not all of Newton is affluent. In our city, 1 in 8 households survives on less than $25,000 in annual income.

Serving over 19,740 bags* of food and personal care products to over 800 Newton residents in need each month by 100% volunteers, we are the Newton Food Pantry. (2018) (*almost a half million pounds in 2018)
