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 own groceries with assistance from pantry volunteers. 


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.




Monetary donations can be sent to the Central Square Congregational Church located at 71 Central Square, Bridgewater, MA  02324 with a notation that the donation is for the Food Pantry.  We can always use gift cards to local supermarkets such as Stop & Shop, Market Basket and Roche Brothers.  Non-perishable canned goods and other grocery items listed below are always welcome. Please bring your donations to the Church any Monday through Friday from the hours of 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., and come to the side (Church Street) door at the top of the handicap ramp. Or, you may call 508-697-6016 to make other arrangements.
