Welcome to the Pantry
Due to COVID-19 the Food Pantry is currently reaching out to and assisting our existing clients in the Town of Braintree. As of July 2021 we are open two Saturdays per month for clients to pick up their gift cards and a bag of extras. Pickup is by appointment only. Please contact the pantry with any questions.
The Pantry does NOT deliver meals.
Visits to the Braintree Community Food Pantry are by appointment only. If you are in need of assistance please contact the pantry and make an appointment. As of 2019 appointments are limited to one visit per month.
Our mission is to alleviate hunger in Braintree by providing the resources necessary for purchasing groceries to all Braintree residents in need. We are an all volunteer, faith-based, 501(c)(3) independent charity founded in 1993. We do this in obedience to the command Jesus made to His followers: "Feed my sheep." which is found in the Gospel of John, chapter 21, verse 17.
We are located in Grace Church at 14 Storrs Ave #2, Braintree, MA 02184. Grace church provides the space for meeting with our clients two Saturday's each month, where the Pantry distributes gift cards to supermarkets in the Braintree area and a bag of "extras" such as paper goods and cleaning supplies.
In our first year of operation 720 people were fed. Over 28 years later that number has grown significantly. We are now feeding over 3,000 people annually.
All of this is made possible by the faithfulness of our God and Savior, the generosity of our Contributors and the faithful service of our Volunteers.
Twenty eight (28) years ago, on April the first the Braintree Community Food Pantry opened its doors to Braintree residents in need. The Board of Directors wish to thank all of our volunteers and donors past and present for their contributions. Please look for updates over the next several months as we transition from mailing grocery gift cards to distribution in person.
Thank you to our faithful supporters.
