Bedford Community Food Pantry located at Bedford Presbyterian Church is open!

Watch this video from Bedford TV to learn more about the Food Pantry effort.

This endeavor is possible because of the collaborative efforts of:

• Bedford Lions Club

• Manchester Seventh-day Adventist Church

• New Hope Christian Fellowship

• Trinity Life Community

• Bedford Foursquare Church

• St. Elizabeth Seton Church

• Bedford Presbyterian Church

Food Insecurity is a growing concern across the nation and right here in our own backyard. Nearly 350 adults and children in Bedford qualify for food stamps. More than 160 families in Bedford meet the income standards for the government’s free school lunch program. The Pantry seeks to provide access to adequate food for families and individuals.

In this season of giving we invite you to partner with us by volunteering time, donating food, or providing monetary support. Please consider giving now and in the new year. Donations are tax deductible and can be made out to: The Food Pantry at Bedford Presbyterian Church and mailed to: Bedford Presbyterian Church, 4 Church Road, Bedford, NH 03110.

Check back often as we provide information on our progress and hours of operation. If you are interested in donating, volunteering, organizing a food drive or are in need of support, contact Mike Sills, of the Bedford Lions Club at 472-5516 or George Reese, Director at 472-4920.
