This community food pantry was established in 1992.
It is staffed by volunteers from our 12 member St. Augustine churches and is supported by generous donations from community organizations and residents.
Why is the Food Pantry more important than ever?
Families are finding it difficult to purchase adequate groceries because of:
- Unforeseen illness or disability
- High unemployment rates
- Low wages
- Increased cost of food
The St Johns Food Pantry helps by:
- Using volunteers to collect and distribute food donations.
- Shopping at our local food banks, where 5 pounds of food can be purchased for $1, and USDA food is available. (USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.)
- Purchasing other food staples with monetary donations.
