The Council is then responsible to distribute the food items to best meet the needs of our community.
Food pantries go through an inspection of their site, training for volunteers, sign an agreement and report the number of residents receiving food as well as the total amount of food distributed. Many of the food pantries conduct their own food drives, expanding the amount and types of food available.
Persons needing food supplies can call the Council at 407-847-2144 or search from the list below to find the food pantry closest to their home.

Meals on Wheels Program Hot, nutritious lunches along with cold suppers are delivered Monday through Friday to the homebound and disabled by friendly volunteers and staff.
Providing nutrition to sustain an individual’s strength and health is key to maintaining an independent life. The Meals on Wheels Program has operated in Osceola County for more than three decades providing services to the frail and vulnerable residents of our community. Weekend and textured meals are available for special needs.
For special events such as Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas a special delivery can be made by reservation.
There is a critical need for volunteers to deliver meals in Kissimmee and St. Cloud. If you have 1-2 hours per week to volunteer your time you’ll be rewarded with the satisfaction of bringing happiness and nutrition to an elderly or disabled resident in our community. Please call today!
