Additional information

Our emergency food pantry provides low to moderate income individuals a two week supply of food twice a month. This important service is growing in need as our statistics show a steady increase of individuals requiring access to affordable food.

Also, remember to stop by our special Food Box Saturdays through September 12! On this one special day of the week, everyone is invited, you do not need to be a Cambridge resident, and you do not need to register to receive a free box of fresh produce.
