As part of Hunger Action month and its continued effort to support the community, Wellington is partnering with CROS ministries to launch a mobile pantry program to serve residents in need.
Starting Friday, September 10th, organizers and volunteers from CROS ministries will distribute food at a walk-up food pantry at Village Park (11700 Pierson Rd). The pantry, located near the eastside gymnasium lobby, will be open Fridays from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Some Fridays may be excluded depending on scheduling.
Due to the rise in COVID-19, this pantry will offer pre-bagged food items with “limited choice” grocery food items. The goal of this pantry is to transition to a “choice” pantry, where participants are able to select the grocery food items of their preference. The pantry operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and recipients must bring a photo ID.
CROS Ministries serves the hungry and operates pantries throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties through community collaborations. This no-cost public service was made possible through an in-kind donation of facility space by the Village of Wellington. For more information, and to verify hours of operation, call 211 or contact CROS ministries at 561-233-9009.
