Who We Are
Refuge Food Pantry is a coalition of churches, organizations and individuals on mission in the Monument Corridor to end food insecurity in our neighborhood. Started by a group of neighbors in 2010 that saw a need in their community, the pantry became a ministry of Refuge Church (formerly Parkhaven Baptist) and continues to serve the Monument neighborhood today.
What We Do
As an Agency Partner with The Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano, we are in the fight to end hunger. In 2020, the number of households the pantry serves has grown exponentially. Originally providing 200 supplemental meals/week pre-COVID-19, we now distribute upwards of 2000 supplemental meals/week!
As a Coalition of Communities on a mission to serve the Monument, we are
constantly coming up with new ways to expand our support and advocacy
in this growing neighborhood.
Be a Contributor. Volunteer your time and your talent. Donate your resources. One hour of your time means one more meal for a neighbor in need. The food pantry is fully funded by the generosity of Partners like you and grants. Become part of our community coalition and transform, not only someone else’s life, but your own.
