St. Francis House Food Pantry is the largest client choice food pantry in the state of Alaska, providing over 110 families with an emergency supply of food daily, and at no cost to the client. In FY 2016, St. Francis House distributed over 750,000 pounds of food to over 84,000 hungry Alaskans in Anchorage and the surrounding area. 94% of those surveyed reported that by receiving food, it allowed them to pay a bill that would have otherwise gone unpaid.
What is Client Choice? Client choice means you pick the food you take home to your family from our shelves, just like the supermarket! When you come through our pantry with one of our volunteer personal shoppers, you have the opportunity to pick out different items from the following categories:
- Breakfast foods
- Dry proteins
- Frozen meats
- Fresh produce
- Canned vegetables
- Canned or fresh fruit
St. Francis House Food Pantry also distributes items for The Emergency Food Assistance Program, senior boxes for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, vouchers for the Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program, and items for the Summer Food Service Program that serves children 18 years of age and younger.
