"No child should go to bed hungry" — Sharon Straus, Founder and Director of SunShine Pantry

    With limited resources and few volunteers, we have done our best to move our facility, expand and build an amazing organization. We now need to ask you, the community, for your help in cash donations to help us the materials to help finish our construction and to operate our facility (i.e. gas for our delivery vehicles, meat and dairy products, and utilities). Click below if you would like to donate cash via Paypal.

Please help us provide aid to those who are struggling.

Community coming together has always been our success. Volunteers are always welcome and we need them more than ever before. We also need cash donations to help us with gas for our delivery vehicles and to buy food that hasn’t been donated. Thank you again for all your support, care and consideration. Without you we wouldn’t be able to provide for so many.

OUR mission

Our commitment is to provide essential nutrition and amenities to all those in need. We strive to restore dignity and instill hope. Our main focus is the family. In the hours of crisis, we believe no child should go to bed hungry.
