Impact Statement
In 2016 we served over 23,000 families, including over 18,000 children and almost 600 homeless individuals giving them a supply of staple food items. Each month a family can receive canned goods, pasta, rice, bread, rolls, sweets, meat, produce, peanut butter and a variety of other items based on supply. The only requirements are that they are residents of Manatee County and have a need for food because of their economic status or are hungry. No person or family is denied  because of race, religion or any other discriminating factor. We are also committed to accepting all volunteers and people we serve without judgement  and allowing them to have a renewed feeling of self-worth. 
Needs Statement
We are constantly in need of donations of food, grants or contributions, to maintain the level of service to the hungry and needy of Manatee County. 
  1. It requires over $20,000.00 each month to serve the over 1900 families that appear at our facility monthly. We limit our other expenses or improvements so that we do not deny food to the people in need. 
  2. We are in dire need of material handling equipment, updated computer software and building improvements to protect our clients from the elements. We estimate  material handling and computer equipment to cost $10,000.00 and building improvements $18,000.00.
  3. We are also in need of dedicated and passionate volunteers to keep our program and services fresh and fulfilling. 
Background Statement
In 1977 two women started our food pantry, by delivering food from their cars. Several years later, because of the great need, they began collecting food from local grocery stores and adding additional volunteers. They originally operated out of a trailer which they soon outgrew. As the space needs changed , they were able to gain additional rooms at the former convent and made modifications to the building. The pantry still operates from this building, thanks to the generosity of the St. Joseph Church Community.
From 2 people to 120 volunteers, 120 families per month to over 1900, Saint Joseph's Food Pantry stands out as a beacon of hope and faith in  Manatee County.

We serve only residents of Manatee County and their families. We attempt to limit our distributions to once per month per household, but we  realize that it is very difficult. We give all clients the benefit of the doubt.  If they voice a need, emergency food is given.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Our food pantry is operated entirely by non-paid volunteers who are moved by the needs of our community. Each month hundreds of families line up to receive staple food items without being challenged, other than they must be residents of Manatee County and satisfy the government income levels. Our food pantry is recognized throughout the county as a caring and generous faith-based group. We are positive examples to the children and families that witness our volunteers who give of themselves without prejudice. We strive to attract new volunteers who are passionate about serving others and willing to share their time and talents.
