About Us


After several years participating in the Greater Boston Walk for Hunger, a local family decided to bring the fight against hunger closer to home. In January 1991 they began seeking volunteers and filing forms, and six months later the Bedford Community Table/Pantry became a reality. The organization has nonprofit 501(c)(3) status and is recognized as a charity by the IRS and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It is staffed solely by volunteers, and funded by donations from individuals, corporations and other organizations.

Each Thursday, volunteers prepare a complimentary community dinner for all at the Bedford Town Center on Mudge Way, and pack and hand out bags of groceries to area residents who need assistance. The pantry and the community dinner do not operate between Christmas and New Year’s, Thanksgiving, other holidays and Bedford Public Schools snow days. We offer community dinners only during the school year.
