Brookline Food Pantry

at the Brookline food bank

United Parish is an active contributor to the Brookline Emergency Food Pantry. The Brookline Food Pantry provides free food to Brookline families and individuals in need. Housed at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 15 St. Paul Street, the Food Pantry is open Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00am to 2:00pm, and Saturday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Items most needed are: cereal, pasta sauce, soups, canned meats, tuna fish, canned vegetables and fruit, peanut butter, jams and jelly, powdered milk (boxes of individual packages), and toiletries (soap, shampoo and toothpaste).

Please bring your donation to United Parish on Sundays (or during the week when the building is open) and place your contribution in the baskets in the Marion Street lobby, in the back of the Sanctuary or at the 210 Harvard Street entrance. Someone collects the food donations each week and takes them to the food pantry at St. Paul’s. You can also leave your donations directly at St. Paul’s when the pantry is open.
