Food pantries in St. John.

The food banks and pantries are committed to helping needy families across St. John County Florida. Services will vary by location and center, but in general the locations are committed to providing free food, clothing, meals, holiday assistance and other aid to people across the community who need help. A focus is on families with children, seniors, and the homeless.

Many of the food assistance programs acquire groceries and food products through donations from the local community. This includes canned food drives, direct purchase, or other food bank programs. The St. John pantries will then distribute food to people who are in an emergency or crisis situation. Some pantries may even be able to deliver free food and groceries to people whose illnesses or disabilities make it difficult for them to leave home. Other locations may offer meals around Thanksgiving and Christmas, or distribute clothing and other products.

Most of the food assistance programs provide boxes or bags of food on a first come, first serve basis for eligible people. Resources are usually offered at a designated date and a specified time, so call in advance.

Note that some of these food banks may be located in nearby Duval County or Jacksonville. However they would still serve residents of St. Augustine and St. John County Florida.
