Not Bread Alone

A Community Meal Program in Amherst

Trying to make a donation to Not Bread Alone before the end of the year? We’re busy cooking up holiday meals for the area’s hungry and your support makes it possible!


Not Bread Alone welcomes everyone to help prepare and enjoy fresh, nutritious, and family-style meals using local ingredients whenever possible. Our free meals program fosters a caring environment that relies on strong volunteer and community involvement. All who come are welcomed, accepted and appreciated for what they can offer.

We provide FREE homemade, hot meals at noon every Saturday and Sunday and at 4 pm on every Wednesday. Donated groceries are distributed every Saturday at 12:45. We also have counselors on site to help guests resolve issues such as housing, food stamp applications, health insurance, and employment.

All are welcome!


Katie Wright stopped by several weeks ago before WFCR’s ” Feed your radio, feed a family” campaign to prepare a spot on NBA because it is a member agency of the Food Bank. We had her interview Bob S. – check out the 45 second spot she created from that interview by clicking on the youtube video (you’ll need to turn up the volume on your speakers/headphnes to hear it)
