The B.E.F.P. is an all volunteer organization. It was created by the churches in Brookfield to help those who find themselves in need of supplementary food and/or household supplies. The B.E.F.P. is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM.
There are no requirements, such as income, other than that you are a Brookfield or East Brookfield resident. You are also allowed to come monthly.Many, many people donate goods and/or money to the B.E.F.P. Also, other groups and businesses donate to the pantry - groups such as; school students, scouts, state police, banks and other organizations. Money allows us to purchase non-food household items such as soap, paper goods, cleaning supplies and other items not covered by S.N.A.P. (food stamps).
Once a month, devoted volunteers travel to the Worcester County Food Bank in Shrewsbury. There, we are able to obtain a lot of food to help replensih our shelves at very little or no cost.
For more information, please call Louise Woodard at 508-867-3891. When you come please bring your own bags and on the first visit, some proof of residency.
Thank you, Paul Shailer, Board Member, 508-867-9298
