We're looking for someone to join a Thursday afternoon pantry team. Pantry team members distribute the bags of food, and sometimes fill them as well. As a member of a pantry team, you'll staff the pantry once every six weeks for about three hours. Find out more here. If you can help, please use the Contact link, or leave a phone message at 781-275-7355. Thanks!

It's happening on Sunday, October 14, stepping off at 2:15 at First Parish in Concord. Online donations are now live, and more information can be found at This is a great cause and an important source of support for the Bedford Food Pantry.

Operating hours for the Food Pantry are now Thursdays, 4:30-6:00. We hope this later schedule will be more convenient and encourage everyone to stay for the complimentary Community Dinner at 5:00.

Pantry clients please enter through front door

on Fri, 07/06/2012 - 15:06

Because the Bedford Town Center building is undergoing renovations, we have changed the procedure for Food Pantry clients. Instead of coming in the back door marked "Deliveries", please enter through the front door and walk down the stairs. Wait in the hallway until you reach the front of the line, at which point you will receive your bags and free items. Then you can stay for dinner in the room across from the Pantry, or exit through the back door. Thanks for your cooperation!

For the rest of the summer, every time a Bedford GISFW client refers a friend who ends up becoming a GISFW member, the Food Pantry will receive $100. We'll also get $1 for every pound lost by members who bring a friend. Help yourself, your friends, the pantry, and a local business all at the same time! Many thanks to Bedford Get In Shape for Women.
