If you need food, the Newton Food Pantry can help.
We are a 100% donation and volunteer-based organization.
Not all of Newton is affluent. 1 in 8 households survive on less than $26,200 in annual income resulting in food insecurity.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, 1 in 5 families with children are food insecure.
Only 1 in 3 food-insecure adults used a food pantry, according to a new study by The Greater Boston Food Bank.
“The pantry is very busy on Wednesdays, so I want our crew to do whatever we can to help the Wednesday clients and the volunteers who assist them,” says Doug Herrick, who helps manage the Newton Food Pantry’s Monday deliveries. Find out how Doug keeps things running smoothly week after week.
Newton resident and Vice President of J.W. Lopes, Jeff Kotzen, has once again stepped up to help source our Holiday Meal Boxes. Learn how Jeff pivoted during the pandemic to help both consumers and nonprofits.
