The mission of the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry is to provide emergency food and household necessities to Wakefield residents in need.
Founded in 1982, we are one source of food for our clients and utilize referrals to complementary organizations for supplementary food and services. We are guided by our belief that sometimes a helping hand is all you need to get back on your feet, and we hold the highest respect for our clients’ privacy, dignity and confidentiality.
If you are a Wakefield resident and are in need of food, for either a short or long period of time, you can receive assistance from the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry. The Food Pantry stocks non-perishable and perishable food items. Twice a month, clients are eligible to receive approximately one week’s supply of groceries. Since the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry is considered only one source of a client’s food needs our staff refers clients to complementary agencies for supplemental food and services. Please know that we are here for our neighbors who need a helping hand.
