The Pantry has changed so much in the last few years and is bursting at the seams. Unfortunately, our numbers continue to grow as we now service over 300 families a week! We never turn anyone away.  Food insecurity is a widespread problem even in towns like Acton, Boxborough and our neighbors. We continue to operate with a barebone paid staff of 3 (all part-time) and a host of valued, dedicated volunteers. We are so grateful to supporters like you, who keep our programs running despite the increased demand for food.   

The Chef Challenge is a volunteer-run event, all proceeds support AFP programs. Your participation helps AFP to alleviate food insecurity and to provide access to food with care, dignity, and respect. Thank you! 

Please contact Kim McOsker, Chef Challenge Coordinator at to donate in-kind services or auction items.
