About SOS Foundation

Founded in 2006 as a single food pantry on Stock Island, SOS now operates two client-choice food pantries, a community kitchen used to operate our fresh meals program, and a nutrition education program


Fresh Meals Program

Meals prepared at the Kitchen utilize 90% fresh fruits and vegetables, prioritize whole wheat and 100% grains, and limit the consumption of high-sodium, high-salt snacks that are the norm for many children and seniors.


SOS Food Pantries

Every year SOS distributes enough food for 1.6 million meals out of its two client-choice pantries.

Cooking Demonstrations

Our classes aim to educate the Lower Keys community about climate-cautious, cost-friendly, and nutritious food preparation while engaging the community through a culture of health, food, and fun.
