The Island Food Pantry strives to cultivate a healthy, hunger-free community on Martha's Vineyard.
Together with our many volunteers, partners, and supporters, we help sustain our neighbors in times of need by providing a dependable source of wholesome food.
What We Do
Founded in 1981, the Island Food Pantry now provides a reliable source of wholesome foods and grocery staples to nearly 500 families on Martha's Vineyard each month.
People experiencing food insecurity come from every segment of our population: seniors, professionals, hourly workers, seasonal employees, and families, to name a few. These days the need is much greater, and the solutions, though more complex and costly, are motivated by the island community's caring and compassion.
Working in collaboration with dozens of other island organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals, the Island Food Pantry is making great strides to address hunger on the island of Martha's Vineyard and provide a dependable source of nutritious food all year long.
