Food Pantry – Dunedin, FL

Dunedin Cares, Inc. Food Pantry opened our doors on November 12, 2015. Statistics indicated that even in our delightful city of Dunedin, Florida, there were pockets of people who are “food insecure”, where children go to bed hungry.   The first year of opening the pantry has confirmed that the statistics are correct.

Since our opening in November of 2015 to December 31, 2017, Dunedin Cares has registered over 860 clients, representing 8,740 family members and have distributed 111,148 lbs of food, almost 56 Tons.  We could not have done it without our community leaders, civic organizations, businesses, churches, 6,922 hours given by our volunteer  and many, many individual citizens.


Dunedin Cares’ Peanut Butter & Jelly Challenge

Congratulations to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church for winning Dunedin Cares 2018 Peanut Butter & Jelly Challenge.  The church collected and donated 2,210 lbs of the total 7,519 lbs. received for the challenge. Read More about the 2018 PB & J Challenge and the companies that participated.

Dunedin Cares has outgrown our current donated space that houses our Food Pantry. Two local churches have been most generous in reaching out to us. One has been providing us space and is now going to provide the property where a donated modular building will be located.  The generous donation of the building from the other church is just  incredible.  Moving the donated modular was very expensive and does needs some renovation to comply with Public Safety codes.  This takes money.  Combine the need for renovations with our need for non-perishable canned and paper goods and you get a better understanding of why we seek funding.

If  you would like to see our renovation progress and donate to our Go Fund Me Campaign please go to:
