Feeding the Hungry…
The RCS Food Bank provides nutritious groceries to tens of thousands of individuals and families living throughout Pinellas County.
RCS Food Bank distributes food to people at our Clearwater warehouse and delivers food to local food pantries, homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses, soup kitchens and housing programs for the disabled and elderly to ensure access to food in the neighborhoods that need it most.
Individuals and families may access services once per month, receiving 3-4 days worth of food for all household members per visit. We wish we could provide more, and we do during the holidays. However, with the high need in our community and our limited resources, we maintain inventory levels to ensure we can serve everyone who comes to our doors equally.
With a focus on nutrition, we make every effort to provide healthy nutrient-dense foods, such as lean meats and fresh fruits and vegetables. While we rely on donations of nonperishables, RCS Food Bank also purchases perishable food to ensure we can provide nutritionally balanced food baskets.
The largest demographic receiving food from RCS are children age 5-13 years-old. These developing bodies and minds need good nutrition for a successful healthy life. Over 50% of RCS Food Bank recipients are children under 18 years-old.
