Bristol County Massachusetts free food pantries.

The New Bedford, Fall River, and Bristol County Massachusetts area is supported by a number of free emergency food pantries, soup kitchens and food banks. Find churches, charities, and government programs that try to feed hungry as well as low income households. Anyone who needs some short term help, regardless of their background, can stop by one of the pantries near them for free or low cost food as well as other assistance. Also find a referral number at the bottom of the page for more details on hunger prevention resources.

Not only will the locations offer groceries, fresh foods for free or at low cost, and perishable items, but the Bristol food banks are a great place to go to for referrals. Clients can learn about other assistance, such as clothing, household products, and holiday meals such as Christmas or Thanksgiving.
