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. Annually, St. Vincent’s Food Pantry distributes over 300,000 boxes of food for families in need. 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 provides food to those in need:
