Catholic Charities food bank

The Catholic Charities food bank at St. Joseph, Winter Haven is  behind the Chapel and the Family Life Center on the eastbound lane of Ave. M North West.  Hours of Operation are 9:00 am to 11:00 am Monday through Thursday. 

Catholic Charities of Central Florida began in Orlando in 1962 and today serves more than 10 counties in the state.  Locations throughout Florida collaborate on local as well as statewide levels to provide a more capable and connected agency to meet the needs of families and individuals.  Polk County, of which St. Joseph is a part, is one of the largest counties in Florida.  Due to its central state location between Tampa and Orlando and proximity  to Interstate 4 and Highway 27, it has seen an increase in permanent and transient populations in recent years.
