Centre Street Food Pantry receives no funding from the City of Newton. We depend on the graciousness of our community to help us keep doing what we do best: feed people.
Hunger in our community is real and your donation will make a real difference. The Centre Street Food Pantry spends more than $5,000 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.

Centre Street depends on your food donations to help keep our shelves stocked with great items. Although we purchase nearly 80% of our food from the Greater Boston Food Bank, it's your food donations that keep our shelves stocked with a variety of different items that we cannot purchase from the food bank. The food you donate to us makes our shopping families excited to shop with us.
