Food is one of our most basic survival needs, yet there is a significant portion of our community who struggle to consistently put food on the table. F.I.S.H. is working daily to reduce that number by providing assistance through our various food programs thanks to our generous donors, volunteers, community partners, and staff. We are proud to facilitate nutritious supplemental groceries to our island neighbors five days a week by way of our ‘Choice’ Food Pantry. We are open from 10:00am-3:45pm, allowing our clients to shop according to their own life schedules that may otherwise prevent them from getting the resources they need*.

*During the COVID-19 health crisis, please call for hours of operation.  Food Pantry patrons will not be allowed to shop but instead will be handed bags of food.

  • Canned protein
