In August 2018 the pantry will celebrate its 20th Anniversary! Since opening in 1998 the pantry has helped thousands of local families in need with supplemental groceries. This is only possible by the Grace of God and with the help of our very generous community.
Almost 100 local residents volunteer at the pantry to serve those less fortunate. By arrangements made through Feed America of Central Florida, our local Winn Dixie's and Target donate to the pantry providing meat, produce, bread, bakery, pet food, toiletries and more on a daily basis. Publix also donates bread and pastries for our clients.
The need for assistance is real. The pantry helps over 300 local families each month. Each of these families are at or below the poverty level or have medical emergency needs creating a tremendous strain on their limited financial resources. Most of our clients are seniors or disabled adults.
If you are someone in need in our service area, there is no need to go hungry. Please stop by or call for assistance. If you are a donor to our pantry THANK YOU for being so kind and helping those who are less fortunate.

- The pantry is a ministry of North Lake Presbyterian Church which opened in 1998.

Thank you for your donations of food and/or money which helped provide food to local families who are less fortunate. We are thankful for God’s many blessings and angels like you carrying out his works. In 2017, 4143 families made up of 11,418 individuals were helped.
We want to send a big THANK YOU to our 100+ volunteers also who make our ministry possible. Each of our volunteers donate at least two hours per week of their precious time to help those in need.
While we do not have a current need for more volunteers, you can make a difference by:
Hosting a food drive (your community, church group or local club)
Make a donation of food, pet food or money
Encourage your friends and neighbors to consider supporting the Christian Food Pantry
If you are a retiree, check to see if your company has a matching donation program for charitable contributions, if so consider the pantry
Keep the Christian Food Pantry, the volunteers and those families who are provided help in your prayers.
May God bless you and yours in 2018 and always!
