Pelican Shop (Food Pantry)

Food Support for Military Families

It is estimated that more than 25% of active-duty military families and 10% of veteran families in our area need assistance with food.

The ASYMCA Twentynine Palms’ Pelican Shop combats this issue in the community we serve. This program helps military families worry less about food and focus on mission readiness.

Program Overview

The Pelican Shop provides no-cost food resource to active duty military families stationed in the Twentynine Palms area who are in need of food assistance. This is a consumer choice program, meaning there are no pre-made boxes or bags–you shop for your needs. Disbursement of food is made through the honor system and no referral or documentation is required.

A military ID and check-in are required. Any information collected is held completely confidential

The Pelican Shop operates every Tuesday from 10:00AM to 2:00PM unless otherwise noted.
