Slight change of hours at Our Lady’s Pantry:  7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. — Inside the Gate.

Food is distributed until all these cars have received their food, which is about 10:30 a.m. 

“In recent months, the number of persons coming for food has been increasing steadily,” says director Tom Bullaro.

“It is with the deepest regret, however, that our food supply is limited," he says.  "It is impossible for us to be open beyond 10:30 a.m.  This means that we must cut off cars that arrive beyond the gate after 10 a.m."

“The following pantries are located in South Hillsborough County.  Hopefully, one or more may be of help to you and your family.  Each of these pantries can only serve residents of certain towns, however, so check their boundaries before you go.”
