The Laguna Food Pantry offers free, fresh, nutritious groceries to families and individuals in need. The Pantry is open to everyone and requires no proof of need. Items included in the groceries are meat, dairy, eggs, fresh produce, and shelf stable items. Vegetarian groceries are available upon request.
Our facility on Laguna Canyon Road serves about 200 families per day. We collect and give away about 100,000 pounds of groceries every week.
The Pantry is operated as an almost completely volunteer-run enterprise. Only one full time employee and a working Board of Directors direct over 120 volunteers who make operations possible.
As an agent of Second Harvest Food Bank, Laguna Food Pantry rescues groceries from local markets that would otherwise end up in a landfill. The Pantry’s inventory includes the rescued groceries, food purchased from wholesale grocers, donations from regional food banks, local markets, and private donors.
We are funded by generous donors, corporate and private foundation grants, churches, schools, and local government.
The Pantry is currently operating with a drive-through distribution program set up in the Pantry’s parking lot. Volunteers pack groceries and provide curbside service.
We respect people’s privacy and honor their dignity.
We believe no one should go hungry.
