Food Pantry

In 2009, EPH opened a small food pantry to provide food for our students’ families, many of whom had experienced food insecurity. In 2011, the pantry was opened up to the general public and EPH has been feeding our community ever since.

We are proud to partner with the Greater Boston Food Bank, Lovin’ Spoonfuls, and Food For Free to make sure we are always stocked with varied nutritious food. We believe that supporting our community through direct services like free groceries is key to our mission.

If you would like to donate food to our pantry, please contact Tom Boucher for more information. We appreciate every donation but have limited food storage, and Thomas needs to be aware of any donations that may be coming through our doors.
