Went there for the first time today,and was greeted with smiles. Staff is so caring,friendly and respectful. One staff member even helped me put my bags onto my rolling walker and held the door open when I left. Good place to get what you need in a pinch,especially fresh fruits and vegetables.

A non profit emergency food center

The Blackstone Valley Emergency Food Center is open the 2nd, 3rd and 4th week of the month. We are CLOSED THE FIRST FULL WEEK of each month, and all major holidays. Please plan accordingly.
The mission of BVEFC is to provide emergency food to people of no income and low income in the Blackstone Valley area. We provide a 10-days supply of food to those in need once a month. That would include meats, produce, bread products and non-perishable items. Applicants are interviewed to determine need. Qualification is based on family income, number of people in the household and any extenuating circumstances that may exist. We are 501c (3) charitable organization staffed entirely by volunteers. 
As a non-profit organization we seek out grants and donations to pay for food and operating expenses.
We Thank You in advance for any support that you can provide to us! 

*To all clients, we ask that you bring bags to take your food home.
