Offering Hope to the Hungry

Hunger relief has been the cornerstone of our mission for the last 42 years, and now we are seeing more need than ever before. Our Hunger Relief programs include:

  • The LSS Food Pantry, located onsite at 4615 Philips Highway, is currently distributing food in the back of the building. No appointment is necessary, and clients may visit LSS for food once per month. Please bring your ID. Current Market hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

  • Backpack Program provides food to schoolchildren receiving free or reduced-fee lunches during the school week. The food sent home with the students each Friday provides healthy meals and snacks for the weekend, when school meals are not available. LSS currently provides food to children at 15 schools in Duval and Clay Counties. 

  • Serving Our Seniors delivers groceries to 450 low-income senior citizens every month.

No matter how many extra shifts my husband worked, we just still couldn’t cover our expenses for our three children. That’s when we turned to the LSS Hunger Relief program. The food we received took a major pressure off our shoulders and allowed me to put more energy into finding a job to help our family get out of this situation. We are so thankful that the Nourishment Network was there to provide us with one in our greatest time of need.

Brenda Espinet, former Nourishment Network client

The LSS Hunger Relief program is made possible by generous support from the City of Jacksonville, United Way of Northeast Florida, Feeding Northeast Florida, and Del Webb Ponte Vedra.
