We are actively serving the Central Gulf Coast as COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to impact our service area.

Feeding the Gulf Coast, as well as our partner agencies, is considered an essential service. We are maintaining regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 8-4. Please call (888) 704-FOOD if you need assistance or have any questions.

At this time we are maintaining an updated list of resources available for anyone seeking food assistance. The Find Help feature is the best source of information at this time for families and individuals seeking assistance.

Now more than ever, healthy volunteers are needed to sort and pack food and prepare emergency food boxes. During this time of increased need, please consider volunteering.

The threat of COVID-19 (coronavirus) adds even more pressure to the already strained finances of those we serve and so many more. We are actively working to meet the increase in need in our service area.

To ensure we best serve our community throughout this ever-changing time of need, we are developing a strategy for the distribution of emergency food boxes for those affected by school closures, quarantines, and the growing economic impact of this crisis.

But we cannot do it alone. Your support is always needed, especially during these uncertain times. As we continue to operate, please consider a donation to help us meet the increased demand for hunger-relief in our communities.

During this time of crisis, Feeding the Gulf Coast remains committed to our mission of ensuring the needs of our communities are met. The food bank is no stranger to working through times of crisis to assist the most vulnerable in our community. We are in contact with our community partners and will continue to be an organization of hope and support for families facing hunger.

For children, 18 and younger, who need meals during school closures: The Find Help feature is the best source of information at this time for families and individuals seeking assistance. For additional sites, please see the following:
