From the Rehoboth Food Pantry


My name is Bob Brawley and I have been the President of the Rehoboth Food Pantry over the past three years. I wanted to share a few thoughts about the Food Pantry and ensure our community knows about our valuable community resource. We are an emergency food pantry meaning we provide food to anyone in need. The Pantry is connected to Federal and State hunger fighting programs through the Greater Boston Food Bank. We get free and reduce price food through Greater Boston helping to keep our pantry stocked. Locally we accept food from food drives, local food drop-off sites in town, we gather food from local supermarkets and accept financial donations. Rehoboth has always been very generous, and the Pantry greatly appreciates your continued support in fighting hunger.

The pantry provides emergency supplemental food to any Rehoboth resident in need. Food is provided confidentially. The pantry is open every Thursday from 2:30 to 4:30. We are located behind the building at 55 Winthrop St. We also provide home delivery, call 508-493-1922, just leave a message. The Food Pantry also provides emergency heating and energy assistance. Again, just call the number above. If you are in need or know of any Rehoboth Resident in need, you can refer them to the Pantry through the info provided here, our website,  our Facebook page or any Rehoboth Food Pantry Board Member. The Food Pantry Board is made up of many Rehoboth citizens who are part of many Rehoboth organizations. Scott and Odete Lacourse, Art and Deb Gareau, Liz Day, Paula Fernandes, Ron Larose, Angie Davis, Mike Sullivan-Silva, Lorraine Belcher and myself. No one should go hungry here in Rehoboth.

I also must recognize all our amazing volunteers through which the pantry operates and serves our community. Our volunteers collect food, drive trucks, sort food, stock shelves and do whatever is required to keep the Pantry ready to serve those requiring assistance. Many hands make light work and our pantry remained operational throughout the pandemic. If you would like to volunteer, you can find information on the website. Finally, thanks for your continued support and if you would like to donate, the Rehoboth Food Pantry is a registered 501c3 charity, our address is Rehoboth Food Pantry, 55 Wintrop St Unit 2, Rehoboth, MA 02769.
