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‚Äôs 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.
