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 Dedication & Ribbon Cutting

October 9, 2018, Dunedin Cares Food Pantry held their building dedication to thank all its supporters and donors who made the new location and building renovation a reality. Rev. Andy Sorenson, from Faith Lutheran Church of Dunedin, Inc. where the food pantry is housed, gave the invocation. Mr. Ed Hughes, President of Dunedin Cares, Inc. thanked all for their time, effort and financial support to make the pantry possible.

Dunedin Blue Jays 2018 Bush Bean Food Drive

Let’s hear it for the Dunedin Blue Jays! They won the 2018 Bush Bean Food Drive donating 1,126 pounds of food collected to Dunedin Cares, Inc. Saturday night September 1,  Dunedin Cares’ members received a generous check from Minor League Baseball for their pledge to match the winning team’s charity. Thank you so much Dunedin Blue Jays and Minor League Baseball for your support of Dunedin Cares, we so appreciate it!

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:


Any size donation is greatly appreciated!
