Food Security Programs

Saturday Pantry & Food Distribution

Every Saturday, rain or shine, RBI offers temporary assistance by distributing food boxes to families and individuals in need from 9AM – NOON in the parking lot of Church by the Glades, 127 S M Street, Lake Worth. We offer canned and dry goods, fresh produce, meat, bread, and more. Attendees are welcomed to the drive-thru car line where they are checked in or directed to go through the verification process to receive food distribution immediately. Our volunteer prayer ministers are ready to support our guests and come into agreement in prayer, if requested.

“Because of RBI I have peace knowing my children are getting healthy meals and that there is enough for all of us to eat. I can count on them to be there every Saturday. I am so thankful, there are lots of people out there who really need this help.”

“There have been more than a few healings due to our accompanying prayer ministry, up to 30 people on one Saturday morning alone have responded to the gospel message and received Christ as their Savior or been healed of an ailment.”
– Pastor Dan West

Partnership with PBSO

While responding to emergency calls, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office discovered families with no food. To assist with these significant distress calls, RBI allows PBSO deputies 24/7 access to our facility. At anytime, deputies can sign out emergency food boxes to deliver to “families in crisis” in Palm Beach County suffering from hunger. Through this partnership food is also being distributed throughout Palm Beach County (PBC). We are reducing hunger in PBC meeting people at their point of need, stopping food insecurity and strengthening households with nutritional food. The PBSO agrees that stopping hunger is another way they are protecting and serving the community, the deputies continue to help us increase our positive outcomes, resilience and strengthen our mission of helping to improve quality of life with nutritional food. RBI is grateful to partner with the PBSO knowing that through these food distribution initiatives individuals and families are no longer suffering from food insecurity and hunger. Together we have created an encouraging, safe, inspiring program that is allowing elderly to age in place with dignity, veterans to reestablish their lives, at risk youth to have food, families, and individuals to have their basic food needs met. Collectively we are building relationships with the communities we provide food to achieving a healthier PBC.

Stop Food Insecurity

Monday through Friday we schedule incoming food deliveries/pickups and food to be distributed at our facility. The collaborations we engage with do not have the means necessary to pick up food from local food banks, however they have a location available and are willing to host food distributions with the food we provide them. Some collaborations pick-up from us and some we deliver to on a weekly schedule.

Homeless Not Hungry

Collaborating with others who have a heart for the homeless community, we provide food for their ongoing outreach projects.

Volunteer Food Pantry

RBI is very grateful for our amazing volunteer base, many are going through difficult times; some are in addiction recovery, on parole, or out of work parents but all of them come together with one common goal, to have a positive impact on food insecurity. RBI provides a safe place to serve with fellowship, spiritual connection, and purpose. At the end of their shift, volunteers who are in need are welcome to receive a food box and a variety of perishable and nonperishable food products.
