The Food Pantry of Indian River County is a 100% volunteer organization. Utilizing space donated by a local church, The Food Pantry is able to spend 97%+ of all monetary donations on food.
Because we purchase in bulk from The Treasure Coast Food Bank we are able to leverage donations acquiring over $3.00 of food for every donated dollar.
Pre-recession (2004-2005), The Food Pantry was providing food to 300 families a month. By 2009-2010 that increased to an average of 775-800 families per month.
Towards the end of 2011 we were serving over 900 households per month.
In 2011 The Food Pantry distributed a total of 260,000 pounds (130 tons) of food to residents of Indian River County.
