Taunton Area Resources and How You Can Help
During these challenging times, we’ve rounded up a handful of resources for Taunton-area residents in need of a little extra help to feed and support their families. We’ve also listed ways you can help these organizations continue to operate and support the wellbeing of children in our community.
Taunton Area Community Table (TacT) | 378 Bay Street, Taunton, MA
TacT is still open to families for a new Grab & Go meal service. Their current hours are 11:15am–12:30pm Monday–Thursday. They welcome anyone, regardless of where you live or what your circumstances may be.
How you can help: TacT needs help adding more to their meal bags. They are especially looking for healthy breakfast items like the following: single-serving breakfast cereals, single packets of instant oatmeal in different flavors, breakfast bars, yogurt, fresh fruit or any other breakfast items you enjoy in individual servings would be helpful. You can drop them off at the meal center Monday–Thursday between 9:00 AM and 12:30 PM. In an abundance of caution, they will have a bin outside the side door where donations may be left without having any unnecessary contact. For more, call (508) 386-3807 or visit them on Facebook.

Our Daily Bread is serving and feeding our homeless population with daily lunches and to-go bags under an outdoor tent daily, Monday-Friday from 11:00am to 12:00pm.
