Brookline Food Pantry
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 gray metal cabinet marked “Brookline Food Pantry” in the Marion Street lobby. 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.

The Brookline Food Pantry provides food to families and individuals in Brookline who have trouble affording food and may not be able to feed themselves without this assistance. United Parish collects donations for the Brookline Food Pantry, and we have recently been informed that the donations they receive from us are dwindling. There is a basket for donations of canned and dried goods in the Marion Street Lobby. Please keep the Food Pantry in mind when deciding how to give back to God for all of the blessings with which we have been bestowed. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask the Stretching into Justice Ministry Team at Stretchingintojustice@upbrookline.org.
