Enthusiastic Zervas fifth graders, with the guidance of their teachers, organized a school-wide collection of most needed items for the Newton Food Pantry. We are so thrilled by the efforts of these children on behalf of their fellow citizens.
The oldest and largest all-volunteer food pantry in Newton, MA, the Newton Food Pantry has been run independently by volunteers since 1983.
Every month, more than 700 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.

We are always delighted by community organizations that do targeted drives. Mr. Leone and Ms. Suma, teachers at Bigelow Middle School, recently stropped by the pantry to drop off donations from a successful collection by Bigelow students.

Chuck Gorman from Whole Foods came by the pantry in December to drop off a generous donation on behalf of Whole Foods as part of the November 2017 Turkey Trot. Thank you Whole Foods, we are so grateful!
