Food Pantry Collection
First Church regularly collects donations for Helping Hand Food Pantry located just down Mass Ave. at St. James Episcopal Church in Porter Square. A basket sits outside our sanctuary doors on most Sundays ready to receive your donations. The Helping Hand Food Pantry provides groceries and referrals to individuals in need of assistance. They serve between 300 and 400 households each month.
The pantry does not have a residency requirement, and serves people living throughout the Greater Boston area. People wishing to use the pantry must bring an MA Identification Card or License. T-passes and EBT cards will not be accepted.
During St. James’ redevelopment, the Food Pantry will be held at Fresh Pond Apartments, 362 Rindge Avenue, Cambridge.
The pantry is open during the following hours:
• Tuesdays: 4 to 6 p.m.
• Thursdays: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Saturdays: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
