Bedford Food Bank Services
To assist and support Bedford residents in need, the Town of Bedford provides an ongoing Food Bank service. The Food Bank is run by the Department of Health and Human Services and operates out of the Town Center Building (yellow building behind Town Hall) at 12 Mudge Way on the Town Campus. This is a service of the Town of Bedford and available to all households for whom accessing no-cost nutritious food and household supplies is helpful. In addition to pantry staples, the Food Bank offers a wide variety of fresh produce, meat and vegetarian protein, dairy products, diapers, feminine care, pet food, as well as household products.
To access the Drive Thru Food Bank at 12 Mudge Way, please proceed to the rear of the building with the large parking lot (Council on Aging main entrance). The schedule for the Town Center Drive Thru Food Bank is Thursdays from 4 pm to 5:30 pm.
When guests pull up in their car, a volunteer places the bags in the car trunk, back cargo area or back seat. Guests do not get out of their vehicle, though those who are on foot without a vehicle will be able to receive a bundle.
The separate Food Bank delivery system continues to operate for homebound seniors and disabled residents. If you are a homebound resident and in need of food assistance, please email the Bedford Food Bank or call 781-275-7727.
Thank you to the Bedford Community Table and Food Pantry, the Greater Boston Food Bank, Chip In Farm (Bedford), FoodLink (Arlington), Gaining Ground (Concord), Dignity Matters, and donors and volunteers for the continued support of this well needed effort which serves upwards of 175 households each week.
As of November 8, 2021, the Bedford Emergency Relief Fund stopped accepting direct contributions. The Bedford Community Table and Food Pantry continues to financially support the Bedford Food Bank, and accepts donations.
The Bedford Food Bank service is intended for Bedford residents of all ages for whom provision of food and other supplies will support the health and well-being of the household. Residents of other communities are also welcome to access this service.
