Shop at either Whole Foods in Newton on December 8, 2016 and 5% of all sales on this day will go to the Newton Food Pantry!
The oldest and largest food pantry in Newton, MA, the Newton Food Pantry has been run independently by volunteers since 1983.
Every month, more than 650 Newton residents rely on the food and personal care products we provide free—at our pantry location, via home delivery, and in partnership with other local nonprofits.
Not all of Newton is affluent. In our city, 1 in 8 households survives on less than $25,000 in annual income.

My husband is disabled after working construction for 33 years. The Newton Food Pantry is a blessing! Our family of five has come to depend on the pantry for fresh produce and decent unexpired food. You always make us feel welcome and for that we truly thank you.
Food Pantry Spotlight
Kudos to the Girl Scouts of Troop 85123 and their leaders Kim, Liz, and Melanie, who collected $262 and more than 20 bags of donated groceries in two hours outside Star Market! They delivered them to us and enthusiastically sorted this food so it’s ready to go out to our neighbors in need. And huge thanks to Pete’s Cub Scout troop for a whopping 56-bag donation!
Great runners work wonders! This year's Zervas School Turkey Trot drew scores of runners of all ages, and garnered many bags of donated food plus thousands of dollars for the Newton Food Pantry.
