Due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Food Bank distribution is changed as described below until further notice.
November food pantry dates are: Saturday, November 14th (inside) and Saturday, November 21st (drive-thru).
The first pantry distribution of the month has returned to an indoor food distribution model with masks and social distancing. This pantry is held on the second Saturday of the month. The second pantry of the month will continue to be a drive-thru model.
Food distribution on November 14th will start no later than 9am. Start time may be earlier if set-up is complete. Distribution continues until food is gone or the line is done.
When you arrive in the parking lot on Nov. 14th, you will be given a number on a first-come, first served basis and instructed to park. Patrons stay in their cars until instructed to enter the building. Please bring your own boxes to carry food. YOU MUST WEAR A MASK TO ENTER THE BUILDING. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN MASK. Line monitors will ensure social distancing is followed throughout the process.
Seniors or those with difficulty managing stairs, will be directed down the driveway to enter through the back door.
A volunteer will pair up with each family to walk through the line and help carry boxes to the car.
When the model is drive-thru, drivers stay in their cars. Food is pre-packaged and placed in the car as you go through the line.

We are located at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 2746 5th Street, Castle Rock, CO 80104.
All are welcome! Please bring your own bags or boxes. We distribute items such as canned fruits, vegetables, spaghetti sauce & pasta, cereal, milk, butter, eggs, fresh produce, chicken/meat, bread, toiletries and more. The items we give, depend on the donations we receive. Each day is different...we never know what food and/or staples we will have.
Hunger can be found everywhere – often where or when you least expect it.
We Look Forward to Serving!
Donations of food products may be dropped off at St. Francis of Assisi Church in the red wagons located inside the entrance doors. It is important to note we do NOT accept any food past its expiration date. Please check the date before donating food.
We also do not accept any non-food donations such as clothing. Please do not leave these items.
