Last year, Interfaith’s volunteers distributed more than 940,000 lbs. of food to hungry local families.
One of Greater Boston’s largest food pantries, Interfaith Social Services’ Food Pantry has been providing emergency food to families and individuals since 1975. Much of the food distributed through the pantry is donated by caring individuals, businesses, houses of worship, and local retailers.
