Throughout our 50 years, QCAP has been a mainstay of Southwest Quincy and surrounding communities. Today, the Emergency Food Center is the largest food pantry in the Greater Quincy area, open five days a week and with evening hours to accommodate working families. The Food Center provides healthy and nutritious food, including fresh fruits, vegetables, and produce, and helps families with menu planning, assuring that families can still put healthy food on the table, even on a limited budget. Thanks to our partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank and local grocers, QCAP can provide clients with a variety of healthy options at a significantly reduced cost to the program. The Food Center also provides SNAP application assistance and advocacy. The Food Center also provides on-the-job training for those volunteers hoping to re-enter the workforce, and for students hoping to enter the workforce for the first time
