OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE FAMILIES WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY WITH CONSISTENT ACCESS TO NUTRITIOUS FOOD IN A DIGNIFIED, SENSITIVE AND INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT.

We are a regional food relief agency in Newton that serves Newton and eight neighboring cities.

We began ten years ago to help people who appeared at the doors of Trinity Church in need of food. A small group of church members started a tiny pantry in the basement; we are now an independent 501(c)3 that serves hundreds of families every week curbside in an operation that has more than tripled in size since the pandemic.

We are led by a Volunteer Board of Directors and fulfill our mission due to the work of hundreds of passionate volunteers.


We are sustained by the generosity of people, local organizations and grants.
