Serving residents of Randolph,
Braintree, Brookfield, and East Granville

For more than 40 years, the Randolph Area Food Shelf has been providing quality food and personal care products to individuals and families in need in Randolph, Braintree, Brookfield, and East Granville. 


No income disclosure or other proof of need is required to receive food. We simply ask that you bring in a piece of mail, driver's license, or other form of identification that shows your name and an address within our service area as proof of residency.


Clients may shop daily for produce and bread, and weekly for other goods.

COVID-19 Procedures - updated 6/2021


Based on the announcement by Governor Scott that COVID restrictions have been lifted and the "state of emergency" designation has expired and will not be reinstated, we are adjusting our in-store procedures:


  • Face coverings/masks are optional for both volunteers and shoppers. We will continue to have masks at the front desk if anyone wants one.

  • We will continue to have plexiglass shields at the front desk.

  • We will continue to have shoppers bring their cart to the storeroom door where a volunteer will be there to pack food in bags.

  • We will continue to have shoppers exit the storefront and walk to the warehouse door to receive their bagged groceries.


We understand that some people still do not feel comfortable coming inside the storefront to shop. If that is the case, you can assign a “Proxy Shopper,” someone you designate to shop on your behalf. To assign a proxy shopper, just call to let us know at 431-0144 or send a note with your proxy shopper giving them permission to shop for you.


Finally, we ask that shoppers return any reusable RAFS bags. We will have a large box outside the storefront door, where the bags will remain untouched until they can be re-used safely.

Thanks for understanding!
