Since March of 2018, we have opened up our Jacksonville Beach and Mayport food pantries every other Saturday to support our hardworking clients. It’s taken some time for the word to get out, but overall, it’s been very successful and helpful for our neighbors who work multiple jobs and are unable to visit BEAM during the work week.
In addition to our new weekend hours, we are excited to announce we will begin piloting Thursday night hours. Beginning July 19, both food pantries will be open for clients from 4pm to 7pm every week.
Our goal is to better serve our community and we need your help!
If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering with us to support these new hours, please let us know! We are in need of volunteers for the following slots:
- 1st and 3rd Saturdays from 10am to 2pm at the Jacksonville Beach location
- 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 10am to 2pm at the Mayport location
- Thursdays from 4pm to 7pm at both the Jacksonville Beach and Mayport locations
