Food Pantry

Food Pantry Hours: Saturday 3:00-5:00 p.m.

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

Please bring your own bags.

The Roslindale Food Pantry (RFP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and one of the central missions of the RCC. Located in the church’s chapel, it was established more than thirty 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 a board of directors, the pantry is an example of neighbors helping neighbors in the community.

RFP is blessed to have amazing support from the community, including a number of 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 new guidelines in mind. 

Non-Perishable Food Donations Guidelines for Individuals and Groups

INDIVIDUAL donations may be dropped off on Tuesday or Saturday between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. If this time-frame does not work, please call 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 to collect food for the Pantry, 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 understanding and generosity!
