  For over 30 years, DotHouse Health has operated one of the only food pantries in the Fields Corner neighborhood of Dorchester. Our pantry serves over 300 families weekly and provides healthy food to some of Dorchester’s most vulnerable citizens. We have seen a steady growth in the number of families who rely on the pantry as a source of food security and now distribute over 7000 pounds of food weekly.

 

  We do not want our neighbors and their families to go hungry. Twice-a-week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, we operate a Seniors and a Community food pantry for Dorchester and Mattapan residents. We provide a shopping bag full of healthy food which usually includes eggs, poultry, bread, vegetables and pasta.

 

  The food pantry is managed by a dedicated group of 8 multilingual and diverse volunteers. DotHouse Health also provides Emergency Food Assistance for our patients. If a patient is facing an emergency food security issue, a provider can refer them to the food pantry (even on food pantry off-days) for a bag of food.

 

Food pantries are held twice-a-week in the DotHouse Health Gym.
