Broad Street Food Pantry

OUR VISION

We imagine a community where everyone has access to enough nutritious food to feed themselves and their families; where no one has to choose between paying for utilities or heat and food, rent or mortgage and food, or between paying for medical bills and food. We envision a time that no neighbor goes to bed hungry.

  • Every day 30 families choose a five day supply of healthful food including fresh produce, milk and lean protein that is best for their needs.
  • Twice a month from May to October, we distribute 10,000 pounds of fresh produce free to income-eligible families.
  • Every month, we offer a variety of nutrition education, cooking classes, health and wellness programs.
  • From September to May we collaborate with the Broad Street Afterschool program to provide nutrition education and cooking experiences.
