Orthodox Food Center

The Orthodox Food Center (OFC), located at St Spyridon Greek Orthodox Cathedral, is a collaboration of volunteers from St. Spyridon and other Orthodox churches of Central Massachusetts that provides food assistance to individuals living in the Worcester community.

The mission of the Orthodox Food Center is to provide access to food on an emergency basis on weekends, when traditional social services agencies are closed and not able to provide such services.

The need has grown in recent years and the OFC now distributes food to nearly 200 households each month, representing more than 800 individuals.

The OFC is open every Saturday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.

Ways you can help!

  • Make a monetary donation, donate here.
  • Donate food items
  • Staff the OFC on Saturday mornings (9:00 am – noon): We need baggers and intake personnel to provide the food to our clients on Saturday mornings.
  • Shop/Stock Food Center: Individuals make weekly trips to the Greater Worcester County Food Bank to shop and stock the food center.
