When can I start receiving groceries?

The Greater Boston Food Bank will notify by mail whether you've been approved or put on the waitlist. If approved, the longest you'll have to wait is probably not more than one month. Sometimes you will be able to begin participating immediately, in which case you will receive a phone call from your local distribution site.
