Learn more about these important school programs in our community providing food to Newton families in need.
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 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.
Not all of Newton is affluent. In our city, 1 in 8 households survives on less than $25,000 in annual income.
