SeaGate Food Bank's Partnered Pantries will continue to service those in need. Please remember to only frequent the pantries within your zip code.
Also in an effort to continue servicing clients at no cost, we are asking that you call your selected pantry before attending in order to verify hours of operation and to check what documentation (if any) is needed.
Please only take what your family needs. Community demand has grown and we are very appreciative of our partners for continuing to service clients throughout this pandemic. Let us not overwhelm those who so graciously volunteer to help in this time of crisis.
Please call us if you have any further questions.
Thank you and Stay well!
