Helping Hands Food Pantry Serves Up Weekly Staples and a Cambridge Food Festival

First in a Series on Hunger and Health in Cambridge

Fresh Pond Apartments Cambridge, MA
Saint James Episcopal Church 1991 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140


Being out in the warmth of a spring breeze is a just little bit unusual for the folks who run the Helping Hands Food Pantry. The pantry staff are more used to the usual routine: moving boxes, stocking shelves and managing volunteers in a ground level space of the Fresh Pond apartments, where the Helping Hands Food Pantry is located. This spring, sponsors and staff of the Helping Hands Food Pantry got a chance to socialize with families they serve at an outdoor food festival, and a chance to experience the communal aspects of food and community in a more lighthearted way. It was a pleasure to witness.
