The Centre St. Food Pantry in Newton, MA ( www.centrestfoodpantry.org ) works tirelessly to end hunger and provides households that need help with pre-packed grocery bags of shelf stable food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Families with children receive an additional “Kids Club” bag of food that includes mini-milk boxes, granola bars, peanut butter, jam, canned tuna and snacks.
This all adds up to about 7,500 pounds of food packed into 500 bags every time the pantry opens!
They are now providing groceries to over 700 families a month. The demand is even higher now as several families are struggling due to COVID.
Our team of Youth Ambassadors and volunteers at Help Empower came together during the holiday season to organize a Kids Food Drive and donated several bags full of treats to the Centre St. Food Pantry.
