Dunedin Cares is a Client-Choice Pantry
A client-choice food pantry enables guests to choose their food as they would at a grocery store, rather than getting bags of food pre-packed for them by pantry staff.
Guests can choose their food creating an atmosphere of respect, building trust between clients, staff, and volunteers.
Dunedin Cares Food Pantry will strive to alleviate hunger by providing food to the local community, showing kindness, respect, and compassion as neighbors help neighbors.
We receive food and money from our community corporations, schools, churches, local businesses, HOA's, other Non Profits, lots of individuals, and over 16,900 volunteer hours.
Why in Dunedin?
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 the elderly choose to purchase their medication over food.
We shall honor our guests, our donors, and our volunteers at every opportunity.
a) We will honor the public's trust by maintaining the highest ethics and stewardship standards. b) No one should go hungry. c) We will operate with transparency and fiscal accountability.
We will ensure all guests equitable access to our food pantry.
a) We will serve others in a courteous, respectful, sensitive, non- judgmental, and compassionate manner. (b) We shall strive to increase the dignity of those we help as they are our guests.
We have a strong belief in God and the ability to succeed.
We will ensure that quality, nutritious food and related supplies are available throughout our service area.
We will be the community's voice about hunger and speak out for those who do not have a voice. We will maintain and communicate information to others about food insecurity.
We will actively seek to form and broaden partnerships committed to furthering our mission to relieve hunger.
