The Pantry of Broward serves seniors in need living on low, fixed incomes and grandparents raising their grandchildren throughout Broward County

Food Drives

Each month, The Pantry of Broward distributes a 55-pound box of nutritious food to seniors who are in need and grandparents raising their grandchildren. We currently have 425 clients to serve each month and need food to fill those boxes. Please help organize a food drive at your place of work, your place of worship, in your neighborhood or condo. Increasingly, the face of hunger in Broward County is someone we know. But you can help feed the elderly by holding a food drive or fundraiser and everyone can participate!
