Calling Solivita: Please Fill the St. Rose Pantry Shelves

St. Rose of Lima Pantry Truck will be in the Solivita Freedom Parking Lot on Wednesday, June 24 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Food Trucks for Lunch Day) and Friday, June 26 – 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Farmer’s Market Day)

Please help us meet a 273% post pandemic increase in client families.  On May 7, 800 cars, representing 1241 families and 3131 household members received 47,000 lbs. of food by day’s end.  Pantry distribution increased 730% on that special distribution day.  The new normal is 350 families a week, up from 170.

The primary employer in this region is tourism/leisure/hospitality, which has experienced 51.3% unemployment.  Food insecurity hits first on the unemployed, who fill the St. Rose campus weekly.  A brief parking lot survey revealed why they came: a furloughed Disney bus driver; a pregnant woman who worked at the Orlando International Airport but was sent home due to the virus threat; a SeaWorld cast member; and a seafood worker, whose company had supplied the huge restaurant trade in Central Florida. 

Pantry clients are working families for whom two incomes in low salary jobs aren’t enough; retired people who can’t make it on their fixed incomes; grandparents raising grandchildren; people with health problems; the newly arrived; people in transition from life crises; and the massive number of economically displaced people due to the pandemic.  

If you need help during these troubling economic times, the pantry is there for you every Tuesday 10-1.
