Groceries that Give

As a local small business in the Greater Boston area, we have made it our mission to connect with the communities we serve – whether it’s locally sourcing products from our neighbors across New England, or connecting with organizations and causes through produce and grocery donations that reach those most in need.

Outside of the local partnerships we’ve made in our first year with various food banks like MGH Food Pantry and Newton Food Pantry, Newton Public Schools, Hospitality Homes, Wellesley United Church, Madison Park Technical Vocational School, 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. 

Through March 31, 2021, a portion of each sale of Lilly's Fresh Bucatini pasta will be donated to Hospitality Homes.

Lilly’s Fresh Pasta’s story is a true rags-to-riches tale. It is a testament to hard work, culinary passion, and a mountain of faith in an idea. The Lilly’s story began in Italy in a graphic design studio, and eventually crossed oceans and overcame uncertainty to become New England’s most beloved fresh pasta manufacturer. They are true experts in the art of pasta making, now serving the Boston area for over 35 years. 

Hospitality Homes is a local Boston-based organization that provides short-term housing in volunteer host homes and donated apartments for families and friends of patients seeking care at Boston-area healthcare organizations. Since 1983, this unique home-away-from-home experience has brought a compassionate response as well as emotional and financial relief to guests in need. 

For many patients, the journey to Boston represents the last hope for a cure. When a patient or family reaches out to Hospitality Homes, their staff works with them to learn the circumstances of the patient’s diagnosis and treatment, their accompanying family or support members, and any additional challenges or requirements they may have during their stay.  Once patients have arrived at their Hospitality Homes accommodations, the compassionate HH staff helps manage other aspects of their visit. Particularly with out-of-state guests, they become a guest family’s sole point of contact in Boston, and help them navigate through the challenges associated with their stay.

“Bringing home & heart to healthcare in Boston”
