Last month Project Bread kicked off its 50th Walk for Hunger. The Walk will take place on Sunday, May 6 on the Boston Common. Money raised by the Walk supports hundreds of anti-hunger programs in Massachusetts, including the Newton Food Pantry’s. Please consider joining and register today at www.projectbread.org/walk.
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.

Thank you so much for all that you do. Because of the Pantry I have been able to try cooking omelettes and soups with vegetables that I could never afford to buy fresh in the grocery store! I am grateful.

Boston Web Marketing held their first of what they hope will be many drives to support the Newton Food Pantry. Headed by Ashley Caparalella, their drive responded to our most needed items list. Thank you Ashley. We so appreciate your support.
A huge shout out to Brownies Troop 62737 who visited the Newton Food Pantry last week and donated MANY boxes of cookies. The troop learned all about the NFP and what it does to help our community. Thanks again to the wonderful generosity of Brownies Troop 62737!
Last week, teachers from Brown Middle School dropped off over 180 bags of donations collected for the Newton Food Pantry in a targeted drive run by the 6th Graders. Thank you so much for your commitment and generosity. We are very grateful!
