To assist and support Bedford residents in need, the Town of Bedford has established a temporary food bank. The Food Bank operates out of the Town Center Building (yellow building behind Town Hall) at 12 Mudge Way on the Town Campus. Please proceed to the side of the building with the large parking lot and Council on Aging main entrance. The schedule for the Town Center Food Bank is Thursdays from 4:00 - 5:30 pm.
When residents pull up in their car, a volunteer places the bag in the car trunk, back cargo area or back seat. Residents do not get out of their vehicle, though residents who are on foot without a vehicle will be able to receive a bag.
The separate Food Bank delivery system will continue to operate for homebound seniors, and disabled residents. If you are a homebound resident and in need of food assistance, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-275-7727.
To ensure the health, safety, confidentiality and privacy of our residents most in need, the Town will not be accepting food donations, or volunteers to staff the food bank. If you are able, the Town welcomes financial donations to support the Food Bank (Donate to Emergency Relief Fund Here or mail a check made out to the "Town of Bedford" to Town of Bedford Emergency Relief Fund, c/o Finance Department, 10 Mudge Way, Bedford, MA 01730).
Donations may also be made to the Bedford Food Pantry (http://bedfordfoodpantry.org/content/donate).
Thank you to the Bedford Food Pantry, Gaining Ground in Concord, the Greater Boston Food Bank, and donors to the Bedford Emergency Relief Fund for the continued support of this well needed effort which serves upwards of 150 families each week during this crisis.
Please be mindful, the Bedford Food Bank service is intended for Bedford residents and families who are in need, and facing food insecurity.
