FALL RIVER, Mass. — One of the most utilized food kitchens in the Fall River area will remain open and at its current location until next spring. With the closing of Sacred Heart Parish in Fall River, the soup kitchen, which has been a mainstay of the inner-city parish for years, will remain in operation at its current location in the church basement.

The soup kitchen hours are 5 to 6 p.m. every Monday. The food pantry is open from 4 to 5 p.m. every second and fourth Monday of the month.

The food bank encourages all who have donated to its operations in the past to continue to do so. All places that accepted donations will continue to do so.

Food stuffs can be dropped off at the Seabury Street site on Mondays from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Financial donations can be sent care of the Sacred Heart Food Pantry to 160 Seabury Street, Fall River, Mass. 02720.
