Food Pantries

To participate in the Everett, Melrose, Wakefield, or Malden food pantries, you must reside in the building where the food pantries are held.

To participate in the Medford food pantry, you must be a resident of Medford, have an income that falls under the Federal Poverty Guidelines (below) and either be 60 years or older or be an adult living with disabilities who resides in Medford Senior Housing.
