The Allston Brighton Food Pantry provides nourishing food at no cost to members of the Allston-Brighton community, as well as anyone else who comes to us seeking assistance, as we don’t turn anyone away. We’re dedicated to maintaining a welcoming atmosphere respectful to all community members without regard to race, religion, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, etc.
In 1974, members of the Brighton-Allston Congregational Church UCC recognized the problem of hunger in the community and began distributing food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas. As a result, those in need made more frequent visits to the Church requesting food and other forms of assistance. To satisfy this community-wide need, the Allston Brighton Food Pantry was created, with the Community Supper program following two years later.
To this day, we continue to provide nourishing food at no cost to members of the Allston-Brighton community in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We are also a proud recipient of a Cummings Foundation grant.
