About Prodisee Pantry

image746Prodisee Pantry is a faith-based non-profit community food pantry that has provided assistance to over 73,000 Baldwin County families facing hardship stemming from job loss, medical expenses, natural disasters and other crisis.

Our History

Prodisee Pantry opened November 18, 2003, as an outreach ministry of Spanish Fort United Methodist Church. The ministry expanded and was incorporated as an independent tax-exempt 501 c 3 non-profit charity in 2005. Following Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, the Pantry sent out more than 16,000 emergency food boxes and other relief supplies valued at several million dollars all along the Gulf Coast. Today, Prodisee Pantry has become a “hub of hope” in the community, with support from churches, organizations, individuals and businesses throughout the region.

Our Mission

Our mission is simply based on the Scripture, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Matthew 25:35). Families facing tough times financially are provided with food and information.

 

As a faith-based organization, the goal for Prodisee Pantry and the desire of its volunteer staff is to ease the hunger pangs of those in need in Baldwin County. The Pantry also provides the local church and community with a valuable outreach service ministry of faith and love.

Who We Serve

Providing food to single parents, unemployed and under-employed households, families in transition, homeless, retirees and grandparents raising grandchildren is always deemed an emergency.

In the past ten years, over 73,000 families made up of some 185,000 individuals from Baldwin County have received help from Prodisee Pantry.

We offer our services each Tuesday from 9:00 to 11:30am at 9315 Spanish Fort Blvd. (Hwy 31) in Spanish Fort, Alabama.

We often receive calls for help that cannot be delayed until our regular operating hours. A volunteer will box and arrange food delivery to help a family who is having trouble making ends meet.
