In 1977 two women started our food pantry, by delivering food from their cars

In 1977 two women started our food pantry, by delivering food from their cars. Several years later, because of the great need, they began collecting food from local grocery stores and adding additional volunteers. 

We are so thankful for our Community PartnersVolunteers, and the Donations from our community!

They originally operated out a trailer, which they soon outgrew. As the space needs changed, they were able to gain additional rooms at the former convent and made modifications to the building. 

Thank you for visiting the 
St. Joseph Food Pantry​
a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.

The pantry still operates from the building, thanks to the generosity of St. Joseph Church. From 2 people to 125 volunteers; 120 families per month to over 1800, Saint Joseph's Food Pantry stands out as a beacon of hope and faith in Manatee County.
