St. Gregory's Pantry is Serving Our Community

We are open for curbside pickup and deliveries. The food drop-off area during our Monday – Friday, 10am – 12pm hours, is on the Atlantic Avenue side of St. Mary’s by-the-Sea, lower level. If you would like to drop off non-perishable items at any other time, they may be placed in the box by the parking lot door (off Bay Avenue).

There are no indoor pickups or drop-offs at this time. All volunteers will do their best to maintain social distancing.

We are so happy to serve our community and we hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.
