St. Francis House VolunteersLooking for an Anchorage food bank? St. Francis House Food Pantry is the largest client choice food pantry in the state of Alaska, providing about 100 families with an emergency supply of food daily, and at no cost to the client.

What is a Client Choice Food Pantry?

Client choice means you pick the food you take home to your family from our shelves, just like the supermarket!

St. Francis House Food Pantry has converted to a fast track pantry.
CSS remains committed to serving our community, and the health of our clients, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. Learn more and stay up-to-date by reading our response to COVID-19.

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:

  • Fresh produce
  • Breakfast foods
  • Pasta/rice
  • Dry and canned proteins
  • Frozen meats
  • Canned or fresh vegetables
  • Canned or fresh fruit
  • Dairy/Eggs
  • Bread & sweets

Open 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Mondays – Thursdays and 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. on the 4th Wednesday of the month

Closed on Fridays

Emergency Food

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 Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program, and items for the Summer Food Service Program that serves children 18 years of age and younger.

How St. Francis House Helps

In 2017, St. Francis House distributed 750,000 pounds of food to over 17,000 hungry Alaskans in Anchorage and the surrounding area. Many families report that by receiving food, it allows them to pay a bill that would have otherwise gone unpaid.

Find out more about the impact made by St. Francis House Food Pantry every day. If you’re interested in getting involved, we welcome volunteers and offer the option to donate directly to the food pantry or go shopping for items on our wish list.
