THE BROOKLINE FOOD PANTRY IS OPEN BUT is IMPLEMENTING EMERGENCY PROCEDURES. Due to the need for social distancing, food donations will only be accepted on Wednesdays 11:30-1:30, Thursdays 9-11am and Fridays 9:30-noon at our 15 St. Paul Street pantry.
The Brookline Food Pantry (BFP) is in need of donations of canned tuna, canned chicken, rice, cereal, lentils, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, canned vegetables, diced tomatoes, and shelf stable milk or juice. They also need baby diapers, formula, and baby food. There is a “drive by or walk by” food drop off at 15 St. Paul St. Wednesdays 11:30-1:30, Thursdays 9-11am and Fridays 9:30-Noon. Monetary support allows BFP to purchase food at a greatly reduced price from the Greater Boston Food Bank. Send checks to BFP, 15 St. Paul St, Brookline, MA 02446.
The Brookline Food Pantry distributes over $130,000 in food each year to Brookline residents. Half of the food is provided by private donations – people like us who can bring nonperishable food items when we come to worship at All Saints. The youth of our parish also participate in special activities such as making pies at Thanksgiving. You can participate by bringing a donation to All Saints, volunteering to drop off items at the pantry once a month, or making a monetary contribution.
How to get involved:
- Bring food donations to All Saints Parish
- Volunteering to deliver food to the pantry
- Make a monetary contribution
