Not Bread Alone

A Community Meal Program in Amherst

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.
