What We Do

Northeast Emergency Food Program (NEFP) meets the urgent food needs of our North and Northeast neighbors while working to develop community solutions to secure access to adequate, affordable and healthy food. Our work is grounded in the belief that nutritious food is a basic human need and a building block for a healthy life of possibility. We primarily serve families with children, the working poor, people with special needs, including the sick and the elderly, and immigrants and refugees who are new to our community.

Opportunities for service with us

NEFP needs people to help operate our food pantry and clothing center. 


The food pantry is set up like a grocery store, and volunteers are needed to shop around with clients, letting them know how much of each item they can have. 


The clothing work includes sorting and hanging clothes donations, helping folks get clothes, and organizing the clothing room. 


We are open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 1pm - 4pm. Volunteers/students can work the days and hours that work best with their schedules.
