Since 1978, CROS Ministries has provided food and essential services to the most vulnerable in South Florida. Our mission is to serve the hungry in Palm Beach and Martin Counties through community collaborations.
We serve the hungry by distributing food at our food pantries; giving out weekend bags of food to students at two select Title I Schools; serving a hot meal at the Caring Kitchen; providing lunch, a snack, and breakfast as needed for children from families with low-incomes at our summer camp; and sometimes just lending a listening ear.
Our programs include seven community food pantries, a hot meal program, summer camp, a weekend food program, and a food recovery program. All services are provided without regard to race, religion, national origin, marital status, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
