Nassau County Florida food pantries.

Many of the free food pantries in Nassau County Florida are based at churches, however there are also some charitable run organizations as well. Due to this fact, the hours of distribution are limited, and many of the pantries only pass out groceries or serve meals several days per month. More information is below.

Due to the limited availability of assistance programs, and still high demand for affordable food in Fernandina Beach and Nassau County, the amount of food provided by the volunteer run organizations is small. But they try to offer groceries or serve a Christmas or Thanksgiving meal to the needy. Some of the charities also provide financial aid, information on food stamps, or other basic needs such as baby formula or diapers. Call or stop by a location to learn more on the application process and availability of aid.
