Annual Appeal Begins

The increase in food and fuel prices over the summer months has directly impacted our community. Help us continue to feed and support your Needham neighbors with a gift today.

In the words of one of our customers:

"All the services at the Council don't just keep us
going through very hard times, they provide us with
opportunities to get out of those circumstances and
put our best foot forward. I really appreciate it and
can't express in words how thankful I am"

- Food Pantry Customer

Your support of the annual appeal campaign will help give a neighbor a week of food, a Lyft ride to a necessary medical appointment, or access to technology to reduce social isolation.

We're still here and a gift to the Council will directly impact your Needham neighbors in a meaningful way.
