Founded in 1982, the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization with a mission to provide emergency food supplies to Wakefield residents who need a helping hand. 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 in need.
