Needham Community Council Food Pantry
The Needham Community Council is a private non-profit organization which supports people in Needham who have under-met health, educational or social needs and promotes volunteerism, community and a sense of shared responsibility.
The Needham Community Council was created by Needham residents during the Depression to provide food supports. The Council’s programs have expanded over the years to include a variety of non-medical, social service supports, and the food pantry continues to be a major focus of our efforts. The Pantry is coordinated by a part-time staff member and a large group of volunteers also serving as members of the GBFB [Greater Boston Food Bank].
The Needham Community Council is privately funded and supported by generous donations from the community; both with food items and funds. The Pantry currently serve an average of over 200 households per month, with a significant increase over the past few years.
