Our Eureka Choice Pantry is relocating to 1720 10th St, located directly adjacent to the Cooper Gulch fields and the Eureka skate park. The existing location at 2112 Broadway will close as of Friday, March 25th, and no food pantry services will be available that day. The food pantry will reopen in its new location on Tuesday, March 29th. The hours of operation will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week from 10:30am to 3:30pm (closed 12:30-1pm for lunch). In the new location, we will pilot an order-ahead model as a new benefit to pantry users. Please contact pantry staff at (707)407-0447 for details or to make an appointment. For those traveling by bus, the Eureka Transit System’s Purple Route stops at the Burre Center located a convenient quarter mile from the new pantry location.
The relocation of the Eureka Food Pantry has been necessitated by the delay in construction of Food for People’s main site. We are in the process of rebuilding our facility following the sewer inundation that occurred in February of 2020. Due to delays in construction caused by the pandemic and supply shortages, a more stable and long-term option is needed to house our Eureka food pantry that serves more than 1,000 community members each month. After long delays, construction materials have been secured and construction of the new food bank is slated to begin in the coming months, which should provide the pantry a permanent location by 2023. You can help us rebuild a facility that will ensure every person experiencing hunger in Humboldt County can access nutritious foods into the future by making a donation. GIVE TODAY!
