The Black Rock Food Pantry

Helping neighbors, helping our neighborhood.

Thank You Everyone!

Over the years we have had many donations of food, cash and people volunteering many hours helping run the Black Rock Food Pantry from the community at large. It is what keeps us open and gives us all an opportunity to reach out and strengthen our community while improving the lives of those in need. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize a few of our most generous donors.

Pantry News

Good News!

We have been approved by the United Way, UBS and General Electric as a qualified charitable organization. If you have a weekly payroll deduction you can request any portion of that contribution go to the Black Rock Food Pantry.


What a wonderful community we live in. To experience the level of kindness given to this project by so many has been a gift. In this time of extreme tough economic conditions, It is incredible that we stock the shelves of the pantry to the brim each week. This feat is due mainly to the extreme generosity of the good people of this community in which we live. We are humbled to know you.

Thanks to You!

We made a difference in our part of the world. We delivered hundreds of meals each week. The families in need have been so thankful for your food donations. We hear "Thank you and God bless you" constantly.

Meals Served

WOW! Expecting to serve 500 meals each week, our meal count for last month went over 1500 meals per week. Please continue to help us keep up with the growing demand, every little bit helps.
