Wellington Partners With CROS Ministries On Mobile Food Pantry Program

Wellington has partnered with CROS Ministries to provide a mobile pantry program to serve residents in need.

Organizers and volunteers from CROS Ministries will distribute food at a walk-up food pantry at Village Park, located at 11700 Pierson Road. The pantry, located near the east side gymnasium lobby, is open Fridays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Some Fridays may be excluded depending on scheduling.

Due to the rise in COVID-19, the pantry offers pre-bagged food items with limited choice grocery food items. The goal of the pantry is to transition to a choice pantry, where participants are able to select the grocery food items of their preference. The pantry operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and recipients must bring a photo ID.

CROS Ministries serves the hungry and operates pantries throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties through community collaborations. This no-cost public service was made possible through an in-kind donation of facility space by the Village of Wellington.

For more information, and to verify hours of operation, call 211 or contact CROS Ministries at (561) 233-9009.
