The Boulevard Place Food Pantry serves clients who live within the boundaries of its 5 contributing parishes: St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Joan of Arc, Christ the King, St. Luke, and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Responding to God’s call to “Feed the Hungry,” we strive to manifest God’s love by providing a selection of food and self-help programs to those in need in an atmosphere of dignity and respect for client and volunteer alike.

Food items are largely received through donations from USDA Commodity Program, Kroger, Colonial, local Food drives, or from vendors at discounted prices. Our self-help programs include the Gennesaret Medical Clinic, Ozanam Legal Services, and our Changing Lives Forever programs (click on links for more information).
