Need Assistance?

We are here to assist you in a time of temporary crisis or emergency situation. Each and every day, we are working to fight hunger here in Dare County. If you are in need of food, you may shop for a predetermined supply of food by coming into the Beach Food Pantry located at 4007 North Croatan Highway in Kitty Hawk. We are open Monday through Friday from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., except for legal holidays.  Call 252-261-2756 if you need to verify operating hours. We strive to provide a combination of food items which include pantry staples and, when available, fresh vegetables, frozen items, and dairy.  We provide as many healthy and nutritional items as we can as well.  It is our firm belief that healthy eating and well-rounded food choices are so very important in today's busy households. Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs and we will try our very best to accommodate them. We do have some guidelines for you to follow though. Please read them over and make sure that you are prepared when you come to visit us. Remember, the wonderful folks who serve you when we are open are all community volunteers and cannot make any exceptions to the guidelines.  If you have any questions or feel that an exception should be made, contact us at 252-261-2756 or at
