Cycle for Newton Food Pantry!

Want to have some summer & fall outdoor fun? Start cycling and gear up for the Ride for Food 2019 on Sunday, October 6. The Newton Food Pantry team (Team NFP) needs you! We put together our first NFP team in the Ride for Food in 2018 and are building our 2019 team right now….

Way to go Lila!

A big thank you to Lila who stopped by to see us yesterday with lots of NFP donations she collected from friends and family she asked to give her instead of gifts for her birthday. We couldn’t be more grateful.
