The Boston Public Library and The Greater Boston Food Bank teamed up in 2021 to launch the BPL Spice Bank Collective to bring more flavor to our neighbors. This successful program has been extended through 2023!
Improving access to cooking spices helps individuals and families maintain their cultural identity, uphold family food traditions, and discover new, delicious and nutritious recipes.
When you donate at the Newsfeed Café in the central library in Copley Square, they will match and double your spice donation! Spice donations will be accepted from November 2022 through May 2023.
HOW TO DONATE SPICES
Donate unopened, spices and dried herbs at the BPL branches below and the GBFB will provide them, along with high quality nutritious food, to families and individuals across Eastern Massachusetts.
Please drop off your unopened spices and dried herbs at your local participating Boston Public library Branch:
