St. Anthony of Padua Food Pantry
New Bedford, MA 02746
Details: St. Anthony of Padua during his lifetime had a great love for the poor and served them as if he were serving Christ. He has been invoked for centuries as a special patron of feeding the poor and needy. In many cities, there sprung up the tradition of “St. Anthony’s bread,” giving bread to those who are hungry. Here, each Thursday, from noon to 1:30 in the afternoon, our parish food pantry continues that tradition in the St. Anthony parish hall. While we are open every Thursday, our clients come on an every other week basis based on the first letter of their last name. A-L, then M-Z the following week. Over the past years, our food pantry has continued to grow. Without the support and donations of so many caring people and companies, along with the dedication of our volunteer team, this growth in providing to those in need would not be possible. In addition to providing those who participate a bag full of hearty staples and more to take home with them, we provides a warm meal of soup, sandwiches, pastries and drinks. St. Anthony Food Pantry also hosts other special services for our clients. Routinely, the Southcoast Mobile Van offers free blood pressure, cholesterol evaluations, as well as blood sugar readings to our participants within the Parish Hall. Religious classes are offered every Thursday from 11:30 A.M.-12 P.M. The classes are offered in both English and Spanish. A religious table is available offering our clients rosary beads, prayer booklets, and other religious items and religious material. We also host The Baby Project. This independently run Project, requires that those who participate first register as a food pantry participant
