The Pantry


At Break Free Community Pantry, we are on a mission to make nutritious food accessible to everyone in the North Central area of our community, regardless of their circumstances. Our pantry operates like a store, offering choice and dignity to those in need. Plus, we provide an opportunity for those who want to donate or make a small contribution for their food items.

Our Goal

Our goal is twofold: to combat food insecurity locally and empower individuals to break free from its grip. We believe that access to good food is a fundamental right, and everyone should have the opportunity to make choices. Our unique “Break Free Bucks” system encourages life skills development while providing immediate relief.

How it Works

REGISTRATION: To use our food bank, individuals and families are encouraged to register. This simple process allows us to better understand your needs and provide you with “Break Free Bucks” to shop in our store.

BREAK FREE BUCKS: Upon registration, you will receive a certain number of “Break Free Bucks.” These special currency notes can be used to purchase items from our food bank, just like you would in a regular store. The value of the Bucks depends on your household size and needs.

SHOP WITH DIGNITY: Our food bank is designed to look and feel like a store, with a wide variety of food choices. You can select the items you need, based on your preferences and dietary requirements.

LIFE SKILLS: As you shop with “Break Free Bucks,” you’ll have the opportunity to make decisions about budgeting, meal planning, and nutrition. Our aim is to help you develop valuable life skills that will serve you well beyond our pantry.

Make a Difference.

DONATE: If you are in a position to help, consider contributing non-perishable food items or making a monetary donation. Your generosity allows us to bring food closer to those who need it most.

GIVE BACK: By contributing actual dollars, you can help us expand our reach, making nutritious food more accessible to those who face transportation challenges to reach The Pantry.

SPREAD THE WORD: Share our mission with friends, family, and on social media. Your support and advocacy amplify our impact.

Contact Us

If you have any questions, want to register, or wish to make a donation, please reach out to us at 306-565-3113. We are here to assist you and grateful for your support in bringing food closer to the area of North Central.

Thank you for choosing to support The Pantry. Together, we can build a stronger, more resilient community where everyone has the chance to thrive, and no one goes hungry.

Here is a list of food items that are always welcomed:

  • Whole grain cereals
  • Pasta (canned or dry) and pasta sauces
  • Canned goods (beans, soups, and stews)
  • Meat alternatives (peanut butter, soy, assorted nuts)
  • Canned or frozen meats and fish
  • Canned vegetables and fruit
  • Bathroom tissue and diapers
  • Personal hygiene products
  • Infant foods and baby formula
  • Simple recipes

When considering what to donate, think about what you’d be comfortable serving your family. Chances are, you don’t eat food that’s past its “use-by” or “sell-by” date, so avoid donating anything past those dates as it could be unsafe to eat.

Together we will make a difference!
