Get Food

We serve the communities of Newbury, Newburyport, Rowley, Byfield, West Newbury, Salisbury, and Ipswich every Friday*.


We welcome all neighbors in need. No registration or identification is required.

When ordering food, we ask that you confirm you need food or are eligible to receive USDA-supplied food. Please call 978-358-1077 for questions.


Online food orders must be placed each week.

Ordering is open (no password required) all day Wednesday through Thursday at 12:00 noon.

Please do not order more than you will use in one week.

NOTE: The pantry will be closed Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Please bear that in mind as you place your order in the weeks before the holiday.

Two Ways to Order Food
  1. Fill out the online Newbury Food Pantry Order Form.
    After you submit your order, scroll up to see the confirmation that your order has been submitted. If you don’t see it, the order has not gone through and problem areas will be identified so you can complete your order.

  2. Call 978-358-1077 and leave a message with your name and number. One of our volunteers will call you back and take your order over the phone.

Getting Your Groceries

Delivery Option

We provide delivery for those who do not have transportation or who are immune-compromised. Select the ‘Delivery Order’ option and choose the ‘Delivery Location”. Delivery locations are apartment complexes that we visit regularly. If you are not in one of these complexes, please select Other.


We will deliver groceries to your doorstep or your apartment lobby between 10 am and 1 pm on Fridays. 

Pickup Option

For pickup orders, select the ‘Pick-up’ option and do not select a 'Delivery Location’.

If you are a new guest, a volunteer will call you after you place your order to tell you what time you should arrive at the food pantry. Most regular guests have scheduled pickup times. If you need to change your pickup time, please call 978-358-1077 and leave a message with your name, number and reason for
your call.

Orders can be picked up at 89 Hanover Street in Newbury, by appointment, between 2:45 and 4:45 pm. Please approach from Route 1. The pantry is located on the right immediately after the railroad tracks. Parking is limited so please be on time but not early.


When you arrive, give the volunteer your name and wait in the car. For safety, place your car in park and turn off the engine while we retrieve and load your groceries into your car.

* The pantry is closed when schools are closed due to weather and on Christmas Day, New Years Day and July 4th when those holidays fall on a Friday.
