The Weekend Emergency Food Pantry program offered by Church of the Covenant provides free groceries and other necessities to Boston residents in urgent need. This ministry was developed by the church in response to widespread need in the city, and the fact that many other food pantries are closed on the weekends.
The hours of the food pantry are Saturday and Sunday mornings, from 10 am to noon. The building is located at the corner of Berkeley and Newbury Streets in Boston's Back Bay, and the food pantry entry is on the alley side of the building.
People seeking assistance should bring photo identification. Visits are limited to once each calendar month.
The pantry is staffed by volunteers from the church and the community. Volunteers normally agree to serve one morning per month. Our part time staff coordinator, Alan Lane, works with the volunteers and helps to ensure adequate food supplies and the stocking of our shelves. Food is obtained from the Greater Boston Food Bank and public and private donations. We are grateful to Project Bread for grant support to purchase food and continue our operations.
