Founded over 30 years ago by late, beloved congregation member Evelyn Ware, the Allston Brighton Food Pantry provides food baskets for eligible Allston Brighton residents. Distribution occurs here at the church at 404 Washington Street, Brighton Center, on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
In November, there is only one distribution, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. There is no need to call in advance or register for these baskets which contain everything you need for a festive Thanksgiving meal. The eligibility rules about residence and ID do apply, however.
In December, baskets are distributed on the second Saturday only.
