MINISTRIES

Announcing a new partnership in May 2019!!! Central Square Church is working with the Bridgewater State University chapter of the National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association on a Book Fairy Pantry Project! CSCC is now a host pantry and distribution location. A special thank you to Dr. Karen Aicher from BSU and Phoebe Hogg from the CSCC Women’s Guild for bringing this ministry to fruition!

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

Non-perishable canned goods and other items are being collected.  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.
