Help neighbors obtain nourishing food for their families. Join at wonderful group of volunteers.

Started in December 2015 and completely run by volunteers who come from the communities the pantry serves, the First Parish Newbury Food Pantry has grown to serving 250-300 people each week from the communities of Newbury, Newburyport, West Newbury, Rowley, Ipswich and Salisbury. All ordering is online (on Wednesday afternoons and Thursdays) and orders are filled on Fridays. Mornings are for deliveries and afternoons are for pickups. On pantry day we need people to set up, fill orders, bag orders, organize orders for pickup or delivery and load cars.

This pantry is special. We deliver 100 orders every week. We have a welcoming environment for guests, a supportive crew of people and a terrific selection of foods -- from farm-fresh eggs, to meats, milk, fresh vegetables and fruits, kids snacks, staples, products and even pet food.

If you want to help calling guests who don't have internet access to take their orders on Wednesday and Thursday, or help with one of the jobs on Fridays, this is the place for you. Help out every week, once a month or on a schedule that best suits you. You'll join a dedicated,, friendly team and enjoy a wonderful camaraderie. Try it out!

Mission Statement

Pennies for Poverty is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization whose mission is to ease the impact of poverty on the people of Greater Newburyport by endorsing models of assistance that promote dignity, supporting allied organizations both financially and collaboratively, increasing community awareness of poverty through citizen education, and inspiring and encouraging volunteerism.

Description

Pennies for Poverty, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2008 with the belief that if everyone in the community does a little to help those in need, we can substantially reduce poverty and improve the well being of all members of the community. The original mantra for the organization was "2 Cents, 2 Cans, 2 Hours, Together." That is, everyone should put aside 2 cents a day and 2 cans a week and volunteer 2 hours a month so that together we reduce poverty.
