The Franciscan Food Center

The FFC will be operating Thursday’s ONLY for the foreseeable future, from

10 AM – 12 Noon at the Shrine Garage.

The Franciscan Food Center (Food Center) was founded in October 2008 by Fr. David Convertino, OFM, and Fr. Paul Lostritto, OFM, working in partnership with the Mayor’s Office and the Greater Boston Food Bank.

The mission of the Food Center is to feed people who are hungry by providing high-quality, nutritious food in a client-choice setting and create a community in an environment of dignity, compassion, and respect.
