Volunteers Ivan Bass and Regina Wu are letting everyone know that the pantry is moving to City Hall, Basement Level. Specially remodeled for us by the city, our new home is handicap-accessible. We’ll be open for business as usual there as of Monday, August 1! (Art courtesy of Maddy and Jessica Traxler.)
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 600 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.
