FAVOR - Food Access Volunteers of Roslindale - is a volunteer-run mutual aid group started during the pandemic by Roslindale residents. FAVOR is led by community members at Archdale Village and Washington Beech Apartments, and distributes food weekly within these housing developments. We serve about 200 households, we do not require IDs or documentation to receive food, and no limits are placed on how frequently someone can come to our programs.

We prioritize purchasing fresh, local-grown produce and culturally-relevant foods using donations from the wider community, and supplement this with "rescued" food from shops like Whole Foods, Shaw's, Stop & Shop, and Panera. We are fiscally-sponsored by Open Collective Foundation, a 501(c)3, and receive support from area non-profit partners, including NFAC (Neighborhood Food Action Collaborative), Boston Area Gleaners, YMCA Boston, Foodlink, and Food Rescue US.
