Flagler County

Gear Up for the Second Annual Walk for Food

img_2750On March 4th, 2017 Grace Community Food Pantry is having their Second Annual Walk for Food event. It will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be held at Flagler Palm Coast High School, Sal Campanella Stadium. This event is put on to help provide food for people in need through the Grace Community Food Pantry Organization.

The Fed by Grace Backpack program, ran by Grace Community Food Pantry, gives food backpacks to students in need every weekend because although they get fed during the week at school, they may need food when they are not attending school.

To enter this event:

  • $10.00 for people over the age of 13
  • $5.00 for children 12 and under
  • $40.00 for a group of 5

They gladly accept cash donations and canned food.

The Grace Community Food Pantry has been serving Flagler County for many years. They are located on US 1 and Education Way, and help on average 700 families a weekend. The backpack program helps many students in need. Last year they gave out over 2,000 backpacks and from 2013-2015 gave out 5,606.
