title Reno Food Pantry


St. Vincent’s Food Pantry is where families go when they simply need to put food on the table.

Established in 1995, St. Vincent’s Food Pantry is the largest food distribution pantry in the state of Nevada. In 2014, St. Vincent’s Food Pantry served approximately 152,179 people. Our clients are primarily working-class families who own or rent a home or apartment, but who just do not have enough income to cover all of their expenses. The majority of the foodstuffs we give to our clients are staples and raw ingredients, such as bags of pasta, rice, and canned goods.

St. Vincent’s Food Pantry At A Glance

  • In 2014, we distributed more than 5 million pounds of food free of charge to the Reno, Sparks & Tahoe communities, which equates to more than 2.5 million free meals.
  • In 2014, we served an average of 15,000 people in our pantry each month.
  • To maximize our food-buying ability, our program operates with only three paid staff members and dozens of dedicated volunteers.

St. Vincent’s Food Pantry provides food to those in need:

  • Our Monthly Program provides a substantial amount of food once a month per family based on family size. (i.e., a family of four receives about twice the amount of food that a family of 2 receives.

Because of a SNAP assistance grant through Walmart, for those who are eligible, we have a dedicated staff member who signs clients up for Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
