The Friday Night Supper Program serves a hot, nutritious meal in a safe and dignified environment every Friday Boston’s most needy population.
Since 1984, FNSP has served over 7800 meals a year to Boston's hungry, homeless and low-income population. A weekly team of courteous volunteers serve guests a nutritious three-course meal consisting of soup, dinner and dessert every Friday night from 5 to 7pm.
In addition, our Guest Clothing Closet provides clothing, shoes, toiletries and other essential items to our guests following the meal service. This past year, FNSP served 6914 guests and prepared 8976 meals.
Every Friday at the FNSP we are committed to:
* Serving as much fresh food as possible with an emphasis on nutritional value to approximately 150 guests
* Providing basic needs such as clothing and toiletries for our guests
* Offering a sense of security, abundance, and choice to those who have limited or no access to these very basic essentials.
Throughout our 36-year long tradition our guests have come to rely on our program and its key role in reducing hunger in our community. They depend on us to meet their food and clothing needs every Friday in a safe and friendly environment. During our 2011 survey, our guests told us they come to the FNSP for the following reasons:
a warm, welcoming, friendly and positive environment; hot and nutritious food; great soup; availability of clothing; monthly menus and to go meals; commitment and generosity of volunteers; respectful and attentive staff; a safe place to meet friends and socialize.
Just like our guests depend on us, we too at the FNSP rely on you - the individual, friend, and supporter - to helps us continue to bring the weekly meal to our guests. Every penny counts, no gift is too small.
