Crossroads Food Pantry has made some exciting new changes to the way we operate. Families will no longer need to call a day in advance to put their name on the list for pick up. East Boston residents are welcome to “Show Up to Pick Up”. Please bring an I.D. with you, and a proof of residency. Crossroads Food Pantry is open for pick up on:

SUNDAYS 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.


WEDNESDAYS 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

We hope the changes above will make your experience with the food pantry as convenient and easy as possible. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. 

Pantry Guidelines: 

  1. You must be an East Boston resident to access Crossroads Food Pantry.
  2. Our food supplies are limited. For this reason you may only make an appointment to pick up every 2 weeks.
  3. Only use the Pantry when all other resources have been used. The Pantry is for emergencies only.
  4. The food you pick up is for you and your family. Do not give this food out, exchange, or sell it.
