Food Pantry

Everyone needs a helping hand every now and then. Get the help and nutrition you need from our Food Pantry.

Fueled by the Greater Boston Food Bank, local charity groups, and local businesses, our Food Pantry provides a variety of foods to in-need families in the Greater Fall River area. 

In our mission to serve people from all economic backgrounds, our pantry offers nighttime hours to accommodate people who work during the day and cannot make it during normal pantry hours. The night pantry opens the first Thursday of every month from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. If the first Thursday is a holiday, the pantry will open on the second Thursday. The pantry is open to all who bring in a recent pay stub. If the pay stub does not have a current address, a piece of mail is required to prove residency. Anyone without a pay stub or proof of employment will be asked to return during normal food pantry hours. 

Program Details:

Continued operation of the Food Pantry is contingent upon the availability of food supplied to us from various sources.

Those in need can receive food once every 30 days as long as food is available.
