Welcome to The Food Pantry of Green Cove Springs

Since 1989, we have been providing Clay County with emergency food for families and individuals in need. We rely on food drives from local organizations to stock our shelves and donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals in the community. The Food Pantry is an all volunteer organization which allows your donations to go directly to feeding the hungry and supporting our mission in Clay County.
