The mission of Our Lady’s Pantry is to follow the command of Jesus Christ to “Feed the poor.” We endeavor to accomplish our mission in the spirit of pious humility and respect for all who are in our need of assistance. In addition we will make every effort to assist those who have other needs by referring them to other agencies through prayer, and other works of mercy.
The pantry provides emergency food assistance. Recipients at Our Lady’s Pantry typically recieve canned goods, bread, meat, vegetables, fruit, and desserts at no cost. Eligibility to receive food from the pantry is based on the requirements set by Lowcountry Foodbank. If not participating in one of the qualifier programs, the household must have a total household income that does not exceed 150% of the current poverty level for the number of persons in household.
