Food Pantry & Community Supper
For over 30 years, Brighton Allston Congregational Church has been serving the community with nutritious, balanced meals in a friendly environment. We do this through the Allston-Brighton Food Pantry, whose mission statement is "The Allston-Brighton Food Pantry provides nourishing food at no cost to members of the Allston Brighton community. We're dedicated to maintaining a welcoming atmosphere respectful to all community members without regard to race, religion, social position, ethnicity, gender, age or sexual orientation."
We serve dinner once a week, on Wednesday evenings at 6:00. This dinner is open to everyone, free of charge, and no ID is required. We serve the dinner in the dining hall in the basement.
We also have a twice-monthly distribution of food through the Allston Brighton Food Pantry for residents of Allston and Brighton. The food baskets are distributed 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 regular rules about residence and ID do apply, however.
In December, baskets are distributed on the second Saturday only. A complete list of 2016 dates and rules can be downloaded here in English, in Spanish and in Russian. The dates for 2017 are here in English, Russian, Chinese and Spanish.
