Saint Cloud Cares

also known as "The Backpack Project" or "The Green Bag Project"

Saint Cloud Cares is a coalition of churches and community volunteers who come together to insure that children who might go hungry on the weekend receive food to eat before they leave home for the weekend. With 

 anticipates serving 350 elementary school children.

When selecting items to donate, please “pass on the glass”.  Glass

containers may break before they make it home.  Please also do not donate items with less than six (6) months left before the Best Before or Expiration Date.  We utilize a specific menu rotation so participating children in Saint Cloud are not receiving the same food each weekend. 

​Thank you for your continued support of this outreach mission!!  It is needed by so many households in the Saint Cloud community.

Logo for St Cloud Community Pantry consists of a drawing of a sprig of grain above the words St. Cloud Community Pantry. Under Pantry is Est. 1987 and the Christian fish symbol, the ichthys.

 Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer some of your time? Why not volunteer hours at our community food pantry? There are seven churches in our community that regularly serve at The Pantry. Hence, every seven weeks Grace Lutheran Church provides volunteers to provide food to client households.  Volunteer shifts run from 15 minutes before Saint Cloud Community Pantry opens to serve clients until about 15 to 20 minutes after the pantry closes operations for the day; you can expect to serve about 4 1/2 hours on a weekday.  Each volunteer day begins with a meeting where we pray for our community, clients, and each other, recite the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag, and receive information regarding changes made, ideas for food preparation to share with our clients, and donations.   Our volunteer workday then begins.

During this time: we complete registration forms on the computer, bag groceries, restock shelves, share information about additional resources in the community,  share a smile and give a comforting, reassuring word with families that are experiencing a difficult time in their lives. As the pantry is entirely run by volunteers, we are also responsible for cleaning up the building at the end of the day before we leave.

If you would like to spend time volunteering, I encourage you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.  We require a total of five people for each scheduled day; however, there is plenty of work to be done, hence, please volunteer.  Contact Candi today at 407-891-8737.

There are two large food drives which occur each year in greater Orlando.  The first is the Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive which occurs the second Saturday in May and the second is the Central Florida Council Boy Scouts of America Scouting for Food Drive with food pick up by the Scouts on the second Saturday of November.  There are many volunteer positions available for our Saint Cloud community on those days to sort through donations for damaged, opened, and expired products. 

 Saint Cloud Community Pantry is a partner agency of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, a member food bank of Feeding America.
