Feeding and Clothing Ministries
Welcome to the Feeding and Clothing Ministries at the Church of Our Saviour
The ministries consist of the Annelle Delorme-Hagerman Food Pantry, the Rev. Alden Burhoe Meal Ministry, and the Boutique of Blessings clothing Ministry. These three ministries operate together to provide food and clothing assistance to those in our community who are in need of assistance. All operate from the Church of Our Saviour located at 2112 County St., Somerset, MA. All of our ministries are handicapped accessible.

Plans for Upcoming Distributions
Following COVID-19 government mandates, and to provide a safe environment for both our guests and volunteers, we have changed our food pantry and meal distribution procedures for the immediate future. All clothing distributions have been canceled. Our guests are invited to stay in their cars as we will NOT use the church basement as a gathering place for registration and meals. Registration and distribution of a take-out meal will occur at the rear of the church and pre-packaged groceries will be provided outside of the food pantry. These will start at 8:30am on Saturday distributions and at 6:30pm on Friday distributions.
Please enter the church parking lot from Gifford Ave.
Guests will form 3 lines (in your cars) in the Gifford Ave side parking lot.
When asked to proceed, please stop at the back of the church near the kitchen to pick up a pre-packaged meal and register on the computer.
You may then drive to the pantry circle and pick up pre-packaged groceries.
After receiving the groceries, you can exit out to County Street by the front of the church.
Parking in the lot between the church and the pantry is reserved for our volunteers.
We will be reviewing the latest government guidelines and back to our more friendly system very soon. Please bear with us as we try to do our best to provide services and keep us all as safe as possible.
If you have email and want to be notified of any updates or changes please send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will include you.
