We welcome the support of groups that wish to work together to collect food for our pantry. While we receive some items free from The Greater Boston Food Bank, we also purchase food that is unavailable or in limited variety so that families with children receive what they need and want.  Your help collecting some of the food we purchase means we can use our money towards purchasing fresh produce and dairy.


We recommend that a group focus on 2 or 3 of the items from the shopping list below:

  • Breakfast Cereal (Kid-friendly)

  • Cereal or Granola Bars (in boxes)

  • Mac n'Cheese (Boxes or Microwaveable)

  • Jam or Jelly (plastic jars preferred)

  • White Tuna in Water

We ask that a Group Food Drive collect a minimum of approximately 48 items (total).

If you would like to run a food drive, please click this link to send us an email with the name of your group, the dates you want to run the drive and your phone number. Someone will reply to find out what you might need to make this successful and to arrange for a time for you to drop off the food.

Thank you!
