Hunger in our communities is an issue that far too many families are experiencing. A lack of nutritious meals can have long lasting effects on the physical, mental, and social well-being of all members of a family.
Catholic Charities Food Pantry Services are dedicated to providing healthy meals, increasing access to food, and developing innovative solutions to address food insecurity in a collaborative way.
With dignity and respect at the forefront of all interactions, families are offered a hand up during their most challenging times. In addition to feeding our neighbors, Catholic Charities Food Pantry Services serve as a medium for volunteerism, community engagement, and collaboration.
We provide healthy foods and nutritional awareness to our communities. Individuals and families can access our food pantry once every 30 days and will be provided referrals to other community food banks. Families seeking assistance with food will also be screened for other needs which Catholic Charities can either address, or make a referral to a community partner.
