Need Help?

The Dedham Food Pantry helps Dedham residents by providing food at no cost.

To qualify you must be a Dedham resident, and meet our income guidelines which can be found on our registration form.

If you have any questions call (781)269-1541 or stop by the Food Pantry at 600 Washington Street (in the Dedham Plaza) on Saturday morning.

Please bring the following documents with you:

  • Registration Form – You can either download a registration form or fill it out at the food pantry. The form is also available in español and kreyòl ayisyen.
  • Proof of residency – One of the following that shows your Dedham address: rent receipt, utility bill (gas, cable, phone or electric), current rental lease agreement, bank statement, or driver’s license.

Please note:

  • If you’re not a Dedham resident then there are several nearby pantries that can help you.
  • All persons who live in the same housing unit are considered one (1) household even if they are not related.
  • The Pantry’s income guidelines are based on the total income of all persons in your household from all income sources.
  • Count only the current income of household members, not what they may have made in the past or what they expect to make in the future. However, if your income increases to the point where you are no longer eligible for assistance please let us know.
  • The Pantry does not consider the amount of your bank accounts or other assets. If you have significant assets but a limited income, please consider whether it is appropriate for you to use the Food Pantry.
