First Sunday Food Drive

The first Sunday of every month we collect non-perishable food items to bring to the First Baptist Church of Jamaica Plain's Food Pantry. Drop your donation on the tables in the back of the sanctuary on the first Sunday, or on any week, and we will make regular drop offs to the pantry.

The First Baptist Food Pantry serves more than 120 people per month. It is open the first and third Thursday of each month from 11:00 a.m.- 12:00 noon from September through June. (A schedule is posted on the church's Eliot Street door.) People of all ages, races, and circumstances come to the Food Pantry. Many have never asked for this kind of help before but now are in need because of job loss, fewer work hours, or medical costs. We do not ask for identification of documentation of any kind.  The pantry provides basic staples like pasta and canned goods, fresh produce when available, bakery bread, and a few personal items.
