Food for Friends Food Pantry was established in 2007 to meet the rising need within the community to serve those who were food insecure. Today the pantry serves over 200 families on a monthly basis and in 2012 distributed nearly 250,000 pounds of food into the Brockton community. We are a member agency of the Greater Boston Food Bank.
We are open the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for Brockton residents only. No registration is required. Instead, for statistical purpuses, we ask recipients: how many in their family, how many adults, how many children under 18, how many seniors over 65, and how many bags of food they received. They then sign their names. This is done as they leave the pantry.
Volunteers are always needed on distribution day and are always welcome to come as able between 8 a.m. and Noon.
- We served 170+ families on May 19, 2018.
