Can you use more groceries?

If you are struggling to make ends meet due to illness, the loss of your spouse, your job, or any other reason, please remember that Our Lady's Pantry can help provide you with some food relief.

Our Lady's Pantry is open Saturday mornings between 7:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

“Our supply of food is not always consistent, but we can usually provide you with a heaping banana box filled with nutritious food,” says Anita Bullaro, co-director of the Pantry with her husband Tom.

Most weeks, we can give you cereal, fruits, and vegetables (including beans, tomatoes, and potatoes); soup, pasta, and sauce; rice, meat, and bread — and often some baked goods and snacks.  Most recently, we have had fresh produce to share, as well.

Our Lady's Pantry is located just south of Sun City Center Blvd. at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission, 16650 U.S. Highway 301, Wimauma.  We are in front of the classroom building on the far right-hand corner of the campus.

If you are coming for the first time, kindly bring some identification, as well as something showing your address, like an electric bill, for example.  Our Lady's Pantry serves individuals in Balm, Wimauma, and Sun City Center.

“Again, if you find yourself short of groceries, don't hesitate to come,” says Bullaro.  “We are here to help.  We treat everyone with dignity and respect, without regard for race or religion.  We look forward to meeting you soon.

“Interestingly, many of the folks who come for food, also volunteer some time to work at the Pantry,” says Bullaro.  “If you are free and interested in helping out, we'd certainly welcome you to join our family.  We work on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings.  Come anytime you wish -- and ask for Anita or Tom.  And thanks so much!”
