HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
We double-bag all our pre-bagged goods for clients. Every client receives a dry goods bag, a produce bag, a refrigerated goods bag and a personal care bag. That’s a lot of bags!
The Newton Food Pantry has had to pivot our operations since the pandemic and we are now providing pre-packed bags of groceries. We use 750 double-bagged brown grocery bags each week! We hope that you can help us collect and double-bag the brown bags and drop them off to us.
Brown grocery bags
Please watch this video to see how seriously we take our double bagging.
Please save save all your brown paper grocery bags preferably with handles, double-bag them and donate to us. If you have non-handle bags, they can be inserted into a bag with handles.
Consider reaching out to friends and neighbors in order to collect their grocery bags with handles after they shop. Create a non-contact drop off location on your porch or in your garage, and double or triple your donation.
Double-bagged bags can be dropped off at the following Newton locations only:
59 Grove Street
208 Woodward Street
365 Cherry Street
