Food Pantry and Resource Center

Our Resource Center was the root of our organization 30 years ago. To this day it is still our core and over 300 families' receive our services. 

An elephant of food goes out to community every month

We serve 13,000 pounds of food a month. That is about an elephant's weight in much needed food.
We depend on those that volunteer their time to make this happen.

We could not run our resource center without at least 200 hours of dedicated volunteers' time per month.

Monthly Mass

 Food Distribution 

Anyone and everyone is welcome to our monthly food distribution. There is no need to bring documentation and we will not turn you away. 
If you are able, bring $1 donation to offset the cost of the gas.
It is a first-come- first served basis.
It is the third Saturday of every month,  7:30- 11:30.
We hold our mass distribution at Greater St. Paul AME Church, 315 NE 10th Ave, Boynton Beach, FL 33435. 

We depend on mission oriented volunteers to make our pantry run.

Food Pantry

Our food pantry depends on the donations we get from the community. Congregations, grocery stores, food banks and individuals give what they can, and we pass it along to our community. The pantry contains a variety of culturally appropriate foods to meet the needs of our diverse community. 

The pantry is open 9 AM to 1 PM Monday, Wednesday, & Friday. 

Sometimes all you need is a helping hand.
