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.
