Groceries that Give
Outside of the local partnerships we’ve made with various food banks like MGH Food Pantry, Newton Food Pantry, Newton Public Schools, Hospitality Homes, Wellesley United Church, local Community Fridges, to name a few – –
We are taking it a step further.
We are proud to introduce Groceries that Give. Together with our local partners and producers, we will select one product and one local organization or cause each month. A portion of each sale of that item will be sent to that local organization or cause at the end of that month.
How will we choose the local organization or cause each month?
We feel it wouldn’t be a true community effort if it didn’t involve YOU. Going forward, each month we will choose a recipient based on YOUR suggestions, so please let us know which causes and organizations are close to your heart. Crowd-sourcing these local organizations and causes having the largest impact on the communities they serve is the best and most direct way to give back.
We look forward to learning more and sharing with you the incredible work happening right in our own backyard, and hope that this effort will introduce you some new organizations that are making an impact.

VISION: St. Mary’s vision is to partner with women and families as they ascend to a more thriving and stable future.
