Our Mission

The Belmont Food Pantry Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose resources are available to Belmont residents. One must show proof of Belmont residency to use the pantry. We have been open since 1992 on a weekly basis with no operating or overhead charges.


Over the years, we have received grant money from Project Bread, support from the Belmont Citizen’s annual Holiday Gift Drive, food from the New England Food Foundation and the yearly Post Office Letter Carriers 

and Belmont Serves 

Food Drive. We remain solely dependent on the Town’s organizations, worship houses, schools and individuals for food and monetary donations.
