Coastside Hope’s Emergency & Supplemental Food Pantry is available 5 days a week at our El Granada office, during regular office hours. All food is given free to clients – no payment is ever required. Pantry food comes from community donations, local food drives, and from Second Harvest Food Bank. We also purchase food when necessary to ensure a sufficient supply of high-value foods.
Food includes fresh produce, shelf-stable goods, and refrigerated or frozen proteins. New clients may visit the pantry immediately on their first visit. Registered clients may visit the pantry twice monthly on an ongoing basis. The amount of food given to clients depends on the number of persons in their family.
The Food Pantry is maintained by a dedicated corps of volunteers who sort donated food, stock the shelves, and keep the pantry clean and tidy.
