Donate to Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen

Follen’s Pantry Party Express!

Looking for a way to make a direct difference during the Coronavirus without leaving your home? Join Pantry Party Express! The pandemic has resulted in a spike in demand for food pantries across the US.

Follenites are collecting non-perishable items to support the food pantry at Bristol Lodge in Waltham. Before the pandemic, Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen fed 50-80 people a night. Now they are trying to feed 250 people every night.

They are in serious need of: rice, beans, canned vegetables, peanut butter, tuna, kid cereals. Now you and/or your family can make a food donation without ever leaving your home. If you have items you would like to donate, please contact Karen Carruthers at A volunteer from Follen will make convenient arrangements to safely pick up your donation while maintaining social distancing.

Need a Mask? We have had a generous donation of masks and can deliver them if you need one! Let us know!

Watch and give a wave or thumbs up from your window to the volunteer driver that picks up your donation knowing it is going to serve an urgent need. See photos below of recent dinosaur pickups.  Click on any photo to enlarge. Use back arrow to return to this page.
