Back Roads Program

The Back Roads Program is a mobile food pantry operated by Catholic Charities St. Augustine that directly addresses the lack of transportation and other low-income barriers by the delivery of food to the remote parts of our three service areas (Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns).

We specifically target areas that are identified as food deserts by the USDA. Those who live in food deserts have limited access to transportation and grocery stores. Our team works alongside local libraries, community centers, churches, parishes and other outreach organizations which will help us to identify areas and individuals most in need.

To get help or donate to this program, contact Tara Provini at tprovini@ccbstaug.org or 904-829-6300, ext. 712.

A STORY OF HOPE: JOSIE

Josie* came to Catholic Charities in May 2020, heavily pregnant, work hours reduced, and two small daughters at home depending on her. She was desperate for food. Catholic Charities assisted Josie by bringing food bags out to her because she did not have the gas to come into town. Assisting with food, Josie was able to focus on paying her rent and utilities and gain financial stability again.
