Our mission is to provide families within our community with consistent access to nutritious food in a dignified and sensitive environment. Dozens of families shop each time we are open and more than 10 new families come to us each month. Our shoppers are primarily from Newton and span all ages and situations.
The Centre Street Food Pantry opened its doors in January of 2011 to begin supplying food items to families and individuals in need from Newton and surrounding communities.
Pantry volunteers unload 10,000 pounds of food each month from the Greater Boston Food Bank. This is supplemented by donations from many community partners and businesses.
