Welcome to the Dedham Food Pantry website!

Our organization is a non-denominational, and non-political run entirely by volunteers and funded entirely by contributions.  We were established in 1990 with the mission of ending hunger in the Dedham community.

The Dedham Food Pantry distributes over 22,000 bags of food annually to more than 400 households. Our clients are families with children, the disabled, and senior citizens who may have fallen into hard times due to loss of employment, reduction in benefits, or just living on a fixed income.

The Dedham Food Pantry’s operations is run directly from donations received, and volunteers who have dedicated their time and resources to make a difference in the community.   Local businesses like Federal Realty Investments, Costco, BJs, Trader Joes, Shaws, Stop and Shop and so much more regularly donate in kind. The generosity of our contributors has enabled the Dedham Food Pantry to provide a range of food including fresh produce milk and eggs.  We also provide frozen meats, fish, chicken, vegetables and berries.  We also offer canned meats, canned vegetables and all staples a family would need including cleaning supplies and toilet paper.
