Thank you Ameer!

On a busy day just before Christmas, nothing lit up our pantry more than the generosity of Ameer who asked his guests to donate food for our pantry instead of bringing gifts for his birthday party. They did. Happy eighth birthday Ameer and thanks so much for your support!

NFP at Stop & Shop “Sneak Peak” Grand Opening

Last Thursday evening, members of the NFP attended the  Grand Opening “Sneak Peak” event at the new Stop & Shop store on Needham Street in Newton Highlands where they were presented with a $1,000 Stop & Shop grocery card donation to help fight hunger in our community.

Thank you Celia!

We are always so humbled by the generosity of our community, especially when it comes from our younger members. A big shout out to Celia Granofsky who, instead of gifts for her recent 9th birthday celebration, she asked for donations for the Newton Food Pantry. Thank you Celia!
