The Bethel Community Development Rehoboth Food Pantry & Meal Center is a program designed and established to provide a vital and essential service to the community of Bloomfield and its surrounding areas. Our endeavor is to supply emergency food provisions as well as hot nutritious meals to individuals, families and seniors regardless of race or religion.  It is our intention to offer hospitality, compassion, encouragement and support to those in need.

The Bethel Rehoboth Food Pantry provides food packages to residents of Bloomfield and its surrounding areas every other Saturday 11-1:00 p.m. We also give breakfast and bagged lunches at this time. We also honor emergency requests and agency referrals whenever needed. 
Due to the tremendous growth in our client base and the seriousness of hunger, it has been necessary to expand our hours, we also distribute food every 1st and 3rd Thursdays, from 5:45-6:45 pm.

Our meal center is open every Thursday evening from 5:00-7:00 pm offering hot nutritious meals to everyone in Bloomfield.and throughout Essex County.  

All services are done with love and compassion, with respect and support of the individual.
