The pantry relies on food and personal care donations from the community to supplement the food we purchase from the Greater Boston Food Bank. Help us keep our shelves stocked by donating our most-needed items, which include:
pasta or rice side dishes like Knorr, Rice Roni or Near East
hearty ready to eat soups like Progresso, Campbell's or Healthy Choice
heat and serve meals such as beef stew or chili in cans or pouches
We accept food donations every Thursday from 9:30 am -1 pm. If you are not able to drop off at that time, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-358-1077 to arrange another time.
You can also use our Amazon Wish List to purchase needed items and they will be shipped to us.
Fundraiser at Loretta
The second Wednesday of every month, from 5:00 pm on, diners can enjoy Loretta’s delicious offerings—whether in the restaurant or as take-out—and a portion of the meal price will go to the Newbury Pantry. We encourage you to make a reservation in advance. Loretta Restaurant is located at 15 Pleasant Street, Newburyport. 978-463-0000. Many thanks to Loretta owner Ted Epstein for his support.
Donations help us to purchase food from the Greater Boston Food Bank and local stores when critical items like eggs or milk are not otherwise available. We have no paid staff and few operating expenses.
You can donate online using your PayPal account or credit card.
