Welcome to the South County Food Pantry

The South County Food Pantry has moved to a new location! We are very grateful to the Emmanuel Lutheran Church for housing us since 1986, but we have outgrown that space. We now have almost tripled the space and can serve our clients and receive donations much more efficiently. Volunteer Application 2014 1

The South County Food Pantry, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to gathering, organizing, and distributing food to those in need in Venice, Osprey, Laurel, and Nokomis, Florida. Located at 247 Center Court, Venice, FL 34285, we are a nonprofit, 501 c(3) organization manned strictly by volunteers. We have no paid employees, and all donations go directly to our clients.
