Brookline Community Aging Network –
This website is a clearing house of information detailing Brookline's extensive network of services and activities that help make our town an eminently livable community. Here you will find the abundance of social, educational, and recreational programs that can enrich our lives, build a sense of community, and make our town an even better place for all.
We all learned to use Zoom during the pandemic. Traditional meetings are starting to come back, but some people like the option to attend remotely. The Senior Center staff is working to facilitate hybrid meetings with both virtual and in-person participants. For information contact Jamie Jensen at or 617-730-2753 or John Seay at .

Thank you for helping us serve so many needy people over the past 18 months. With clients still coming to us in record numbers, we really need additional volunteers and hope you will tell family, friends, and neighbors about the opportunity to help. Potential volunteers can learn more and connect with us here.
We are also seeking a full-time Inventory Manager to play a key operational role and would appreciate your sharing this opportunity with family, friends and neighbors. In addition to managing Pantry inventory and assisting with daily operations, this role includes driving food between locations and lifting boxes up to 50 lbs. For more information, or if someone you know might want to apply, please contact Julia at
The Brookline Food Pantry (BFP) serves over 700 needy households around Brookline, Massachusetts each week, providing fresh produce, meat and dairy as well as household staples. The BFP also serves over 500 students weekly during the school year with weekend food bags and delivers food to clients who cannot get to our three locations. The BFP has a small paid staff as well as over 200 active volunteers who help deliver these key services.
Understanding that everyone has to assess their own level of risk, we can be a wonderful resource for one another during these difficult days. Sharing what we are doing and how we are doing it, as well as what we are not doing, can help us to better understand the needs of our senior community.
An online copy of the survey is available here.
If you would like a hard copy of the survey mailed to you, please call us at 617-730-2777.
