Hunger in our community is real and your donation will make a real difference. The Centre Street Food Pantry spends more than $3,000 per month on food from the Greater Boston Food Bank and our other partners to supplement the food donated from our community. We rely on the generosity of our people like you to keep our shelves well stocked, so please help in any way you can. 

The Centre Street Food Pantry also accepts personal and group donations of  unexpired, unopened food and toiletries. Please bring donations to the pantry on one of the days that we open. To deliver large donations, please email or call in advance to set up a time. We can help you organize a food drive in your community. What do we currently need? Check out our list.

Kids Club – The summer months are difficult for some families.  With no access to free breakfast and lunch at school, more food is needed at home. CSFP helps close the gap with an extra bag of healthy food items like chicken, peanut butter, raisins and cereal for 80 families each summer month.
