Our Services

Food Assistance

Catholic Charities – St. Augustine Regional office offers food assistance at its St. Augustine’s office. Those who receive food include families, individuals, seniors on fixed incomes, persons with disabilities or chronic illness, victims of violence and emergency situations, employed individuals who need a supplement, or anyone who cannot afford to purchase enough food to adequately meet their nutritional needs. The food distributed by the Catholic Charities Pantry is obtained through the generosity of the community, including food drives and monetary donations from individuals, businesses and organizations. Our hope is that no family or person goes to sleep hungry.

The Food Pantry Hours of Operation:

Mondays – 10 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 3 pm

Wednesdays – 10 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 3 pm

Please bring an official photo ID, such as a driver’s license.

Back Roads Program

The Back Roads Program (mobile food pantry) will address the lack of transportation and other low-income barriers by the delivery of food to the remote parts of our three counties (Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns).  We will target the areas that are designated as food deserts by the USDA with “low access to transportation” and “low access to food”.  We will be working with local libraries, community centers, churches, parishes and other outreach organizations which will help us to identify those in need and those areas in needs.

Weekend Hunger Backpack Program

The Weekend Hunger Backpack Program addresses local food insecurity by sending home a bag each week filled with nutritious kid-friendly food to feed an elementary or middle school child.  With help from the school district staff, children are identified by their participation in the federal school meal assistance program.  Each week we organize volunteers to help stuff recyclable bags with uniformed shelf-stable and nutritious food and other items and then deliver these bags to the schools every Thursday so that the school can in turn distribute before the weekend.  Extra food is included on longer breaks such as three-day weekends, holidays and spring break.

We gladly accept donations of non-perishable food items from the community.

The following are some of our most urgently needed items:

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Cereal – Hot and Cold
  • Pasta and Spaghetti Sauce
  • Canned Goods – Vegetables, fruits, soups, tuna, meats
  • Dried Beans / Rice
  • Diapers

Homeless Prevention

Are you in danger of becoming homeless or experiencing a financial crisis due to circumstances beyond your control?

Catholic Charities is committed to providing the basic needs necessary to prevent homelessness. A crisis situation can threaten families already living from paycheck to paycheck when an unexpected illness, loss of employment or other family crisis impacts finances already stretched too far. Our Homeless Prevention Program is open to families with children, households that are homeless, clients referred from other agencies that have worked with the family/individual, households or individuals who have experienced domestic violence in the past 30 days and families with children that are secondary tenants. Services available include:

  • Rent and mortgage assistance
  • Utility payments
  • Rent and utility deposits
  • Rental application fees
