Read about Food Pantry Services Below

FOOD:
 The Mission stocks a variety of foods that represent a well-balanced diet and specific foods for persons who require special diets. 

 CLOTHING & HOUSEHOLD ITEMS:  
All day long, generous individuals and businesses drop off bags of donated, serviceable clothing and household items. These items are then carefully sorted by volunteers, with the clothing washed if necessary, and then hung on racks and made available to those in need. Thousands of items per week are distributed this way.

 REFERRALS:
The Star of the Sea Outreach Mission also provides referral services. We maintain an extensive list of other organizations and agencies who provide social services and assistance for people with special needs.  

 OTHER SERVICES: 
The Star of the Sea Mission provides access to apply for Food Stamps, Temporary Cash Assistance, Medicaid and other services as are needed and appropriate. We have collected and redistributed over 40 tons of clothing, furniture, bed linens, and other household items donated by individuals, local businesses, and the U.S. Navy, in our first four years of operation.

Services at the Food Pantry

The SOS Foundation food pantry is the first program that started the Foundation, growing into the largest food pantry in South Florida and supplying over 2,000,000 pounds of produce each year. It has been a staple program and has allowed us to grow into a strong force in helping our community. The pantry has many other services besides food, such as clothing and household goods, referrals, and assistance in applying for benefits.
