Make a Monetary Donation

Monetary donations allow us to purchase more food than you would be able to with the same amount of money.

Did you know nearly 90% of our annual budget comes from donations? We rely on the generosity of the community to support our efforts to provide food to the hungry of Westfield. Food donations are always appreciated but we have limited storage space and can help more people with a monetary donation. Your donation is 501(c)(3) tax-deductible.

You can send a check made payable to: Westfield Food Pantry
and mail to: 101 Meadow Street, Westfield, MA 01085

You can donate online by clicking the donate button.
