The M.O. FOOD = L.I.F.E. Food Pantry:

Located at 723 Pleasant Street in New Bedford, the food pantry supports the growing population of hungry people in Greater New Bedford, and allows the people we support to give back to the community by maintaining the pantry and distributing food.

Going into it’s fourteenth year, the M.O. FOOD = L.I.F.E. Pantry at the New Bedford Hotel continues to be run by the people we support, our staff and volunteers. The food pantry is a collaborative venture with the Hunger Commission of Southeastern Massachusetts. We are delighted to report on the success of the Pantry. Each month, over 300 people in need receive food from the pantry. This work in helping others allows the individuals we support to become part of and give back to their community in a tangible and vitally important way.
