ABOUT US

Sharing & Caring opened its doors on January 2, 1985 as an emergency food bank providing a basic staple of foods for needy individuals and families. Originally established in a building donated by the First Baptist Church of Fort Walton Beach, we relocated to 126 Beal Parkway in June 1992. Our current building and land, leased from First Presbyterian Church, were renovated extensively by volunteer labor and generous donations from the community.

We are open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. We close at 11:00 am on the 3rd Monday on the the third Monday of each month for a general membership meeting and on Federal Holidays.
