The SOS Foundation Food Pantry was our very first program back in 2006, and has since evolved into the largest food pantry in South Florida, supplying over 2,000,000 pounds of food each year.
Our pantries strengthen and uplift Monroe County, serving thousands of families and individuals every year.
Our pantries stock a variety of fresh and nonperishable foods that make up well-balanced and even specialized 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.
*Unfortunately, during COVID-19 we are not able to accept Clothing & Household Items*
Our pantries also provide referral services. We maintain an extensive list of other organizations and agencies who provide social services and assistance for people with special needs.
Our pantries provides access and information about applying 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.
