Food Pantry

The Roslindale Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and one of the central missions of the Roslindale Congregational Church, UCC. Located in the Fellowship Hall, it was established more than 40 years ago by the pastor and members of the church to serve as an emergency source of food for individuals and families in need. Staffed by volunteers and supported by the church, the pantry is an example of neighbors helping neighbors in the community.

Serving Roslindale and West Roxbury, the Food Pantry is a client-choice pantry where families can come once per month to self-select from available items. Food is distributed free of charge. A MA state ID or driver’s license is needed to shop at the Food Pantry.

Clients are asked to bring their own bags. Hours: Saturday 3:00–5:00 p.m.

Please note the Food Pantry will be closed on Saturday, November 30 and Saturday, December 28.

How to Donate to the Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is blessed to have amazing support from the community, including several schools. Donations are welcome, as we strive to keep our neighbors and friends from going hungry in Roslindale and West Roxbury; however, the pantry has limited storage space, so we ask that you please keep these guidelines in mind:

Non-Perishable Food Donations—Guidelines for Individuals and Groups

Individual donations may be dropped off on Saturday between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. If this time frame does not work, please email the pantry to arrange for another time.

Group donations must be coordinated and scheduled with the director of the pantry at least two weeks prior to delivery. Groups include schools, churches, and neighborhood food drives. If you are intending to do a food drive, please contact us first. Due to limited space, we may request that you limit your donation to a certain size, for example, three to four milk crates full of food. Thank you for your understanding and generosity!

Monetary donations should be made payable by check to the Roslindale Food Pantry and mailed to:
