The oldest and largest food pantry in Newton, MA, the Newton Food Pantry has been run independently by volunteers since 1983.
Every month, more than 600 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.
Not all of Newton is affluent. In our city, 1 in 8 households survives on less than $25,000 in annual income.

My husband is disabled after working construction for 33 years. The Newton Food Pantry is a blessing! Our family of five has come to depend on the pantry for fresh produce and decent unexpired food. You always make us feel welcome and for that we truly thank you.
