Food Pantry

The food pantry at Central Square Church will continue to be open normal hours Thursdays from 10 AM to 1:00 PM, and first Mondays of the month, 6-7:30pm. Precautions have been put in place so that patrons will not come in contact with each other during their visit. If you know someone who frequents the pantry and may not have access to this email, please let them know. 

If you have lost your job or have kids at home from school, or are anyone in need of some assistance with food, please come and see us (Bridgewater residents only).

If you would like to help out, you can drop off donations at the side door of the church every weekday from 9 to 1. 

Please tell anyone who needs to know this!


It is open to all Bridgewater Residents (with proof of residency in Bridgewater at registration).

About the Food Pantry

This service to the Bridgewater community is intended to provide supplemental assistance to Bridgewater residents in need. The quantity of food distributed is based on the number of people in each household and the availability of sufficient quantities of specific food items. Patrons are allowed to select their groceries with assistance from a pantry staff person. 

A large selection of non-perishable items is usually available, as well as selected perishable items based on availability. Proof of Bridgewater residency is required to participate in the program.


Donations Requested

Monetary donations are greatly appreciated. You can donate for food purchases, but we also ask that you consider donating for operations as well. Central Square Church generously donates all of the operating expenses for the Bridgewater Food Pantry, including the electricity and oil to run all of the refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, lights, and heat; phone support; administrative work of the office manager and the treasurers; trash removal; and cleaning services. Without these services, the Food Pantry would not be able to operate.

Non-perishable canned goods and other items are also welcome. The need in Bridgewater is still present and we want to give all residents an opportunity to help.  Please bring your donations to the church during the hours, Monday through Thursday, 9 AM – 12 PM. Or you may call 508-697-6016 to make other arrangements.
