Coastal’s Food Pantry Ministry is full of dedicated volunteers that are anxious to help folks when they need it the most. By partnering with the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia, Operation Blessing and the donations from our members, we have been able to find a way to procure and channel staple commodities to families in need within our congregation and to those around us to whom we have been given the privilege to minister.

The Food Pantry is located at 2800 S. Independence Blvd in Va.Beach and is open for Community Distribution on the second Tuesday of each month from 12:00:pm-1:30pm.
