Who We Are
South Community Food Pantry at South Congregational Church, Pittsfield began as an outgrowth of St. Joseph’s Kitchen in the 1990s. Around 2010, it moved downstairs to Barrett Hall and joined the Western MA Food Bank shortly thereafter. It is the largest food pantry distribution in Berkshire County, serving 550 families each week.
What We Do
The Community Food Pantry came about from an intention, which was brought to life by community members who shared the vision, and many willing to put themselves on the line for projects that stretch us all. We welcome individuals from the larger community to assist in fulfilling this mission with their time and donations.
It is our hope to provide for our neighbors in the spirit of generosity, respect, kindness and acceptance so that no one in our community goes to bed hungry.
From 8-11:45 am Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, volunteers package bags or boxes of groceries at South Congregational Church that are delivered or handed out. This is a low contact volunteer opportunity. Volunteers must comply with all safety rules including masks and gloves, and physical distancing of 6 feet or more.
Volunteers are also needed to deliver food to apartments and houses in the Pittsfield area and to pick up donations from local grocery stores.
