Thank you, Rosemary Beach Foundation!
The Rosemary Beach Foundation has made a donation to help support the Walton County curbside food pick-ups - and we would like to thank them for their continued support of Food for Thought! We are extremely grateful for all of the support we have received for our weekly curbside services in order to continue to help those in need of food.
Thank you, Prime Lending!

Did you know...?
Each year Food For Thought provides 420,000 applesauce and fruit cups through our back-pack program!
This equates to $84,000 a year that is spent alone on this pantry staple. For this next school year, we are stocking the pantry once again, but instead of a food drive are hosting a virtual team fundraiser.
If you have a group, business or organization that would like to participate in our Stock the Pantry fundraiser (7/14 - 8/22) please contact us today! email@example.com
