We always need non-perishable food. On average our pantry serves 30 individuals each day which does not include their family members. Typically, each person receives 14 food items and some meat. To meet this need, we spend about $2000 per month to purchase all items that have not been donated. The items we need most are peanut butter, jelly, canned beans, vegetables, soups, canned fruit, pasta and pasta sauce, assorted cereal, rice, toilet paper and toiletries. Also in demand are diapers and dry pet food.
If you are a snowbird returning home and have unused canned and packaged food that is still in date, please consider dropping it at the pantry before you leave.
All donated items can be left at the food pantry during its normal hours or at the Calvary Church main office front desk.
Monetary donations are always appreciated. The Beach Community Food Pantry is operated exclusively by and dependent on donations of food and money from the community since the pantry needs to purchase supplemental food weekly.
