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 and elderly choose to purchase their medication over food.
The mission of Dunedin Cares Food Pantry is to increase sustainable approaches to meet the social service needs of the residents of Dunedin and nearby municipalities, including helping to alleviate hunger. Since opening in 2015, Dunedin Cares has distributed 186 tons of food. The Food Pantry is maintained by food and financial donations from churches, schools, civic organizations, businesses, many individuals and over 16,900 volunteer hours.
How Can You Help?
Dunedin Cares is a volunteer operated food pantry. We welcome your help in many ways.
Drop-Off Donations – We love it when people stop by to drop off donations. When you arrive at our location you will notice we have receiving doors at the left end of the modular. We are open for donation drop-off 10 am – 12 pm Monday -Thursday. If that time frame is not convenient for you, the Dunedin Public Library 223 Douglas Avenue has a donation bin in their lobby for drop off donations. Need suggestions on what to donate? Please see our Wish List
Monetary Donation – Some people prefer to make a monetary donation. We provide a link on our website where you can make a secure donation using the services of PayPal (Need not be a member of PayPal to use). We also have available for Face Book users a link to donate on our Face Book page. Monetary donations are very helpful when inventory gets depleted allowing us to purchase necessary food items.
