Who We Are
Here at the Anchor Point Food Pantry, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2006, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion to the range of activities we’re involved in. Through all of our endeavors we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs.
Change of Place.
We see the challenges as an opportunity, and this stance shows our neighbors, by example, our efforts and determination to make a better situation out of an unfortunate one. Our attitude is positive; our actions are moving us forward. With the help of our pantry partners, the Anchor Point Food Pantry is better prepared to manage the unique situations we find ourselves in. We are pursuing grants that will enhance our services and better enable us to deliver the support needed by our community. In order to receive the grants needed, we must show some of our support comes from public donations - businesses, funders, public supported grantors, and kind individuals.
A small monthly or annual donation shows to those who can give us grants that the people believe in our mission to feed those who need help - like seniors, veterans and the disabled.
Even with both parents working, the high rents, gas, and food prices are forcing families to seek our help.
What We Do
We are a food pantry with a mission to serve the hungry with empathy, respect and honesty. To be effective, we believe we must exercise the attitude of kindness and cheerfulness, not that of duty.
We seek to support and provide resources to our community. Our success is measured by the value we provide to those we serve.
What We Provide
Access to the right resources for families & individuals. This provides an opportunity for people to receive the help they need, and keep control of their own destiny.

We can never thank you, enough, Alaska Community Foundation and Hilcorp, for assisting the many nonprofits that are an integral part of each community. In Anchor Point over 300 families each year are prevented from severe hunger by charity alone. Thank you for your help!
Thank you, Kenai Peninsula Foundation of the Alaska Community Foundation for fixing our truck, because of you we have been able to bring nutritious food to Anchor Point for the past year. --- If anyone suffers from food insecurity, please stop by the Anchor Point Food Pantry on Fridays, late afternoon, and let us help you! The rents are high, medicine is high, gas is high, but while we can't help you with these, we can help you with food.
Thank you, Kirke J Herrick Fund of the
Alaska Community Foundation, for your generous donation to help us keep operating during our transition. Tough as it is (transitions), it is wonderful to know there are grantors such as yourself nearby to help us nonprofits!
Thank you Alaska Community Foundation for your Strengthening Organizations Grant. Heather Harris from the Foraker Group did a wonderful seminar with our board and staff. She is very knowledgeable and personable.
Thank you to the Timothy S. Cowan Fund at the Alaska Community Foundation for your support to our pantry. By your support we were able to keep our families fed. For 0.19 cents we are able to buy a pound of food from the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank. Thank you for helping us with food an supplies.
Thank you to the KP Food Bank who helps over 70 non-profit organizations to fight the battle with food insecurity and Thank you to the Food Bank of Alaska serving all of Alaska! Your last frontier tenacious grit will help us to win this!
Now that the KP Borough has leased us land, and the Food Bank of Alaska has secured us a grant, we will make a small, but permanent place to make more room for food and essential programs.
Thanks to the Homer Foundation's intervention, professional engineers are helping the pantry with plans for a building worth sharing with the general public.
Thank you to our partner agencies that help us with giving our neighbors wonderful holiday baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas: Homer Lion's Club, Salvation Army, and Share the Spirit! Thank you to the local organizations that help us with the meals: KP Food Bank, Thurmond's Auto and GG's restaurant! Thank you to those that donate to help us feed our neighbors every time you can! Thank you KP Food Bank, Walmart, Homer Safeway, Homer Pantry, and Save U More!
And THANK YOU to our VOLUNTEERS!!!
We Are Fortunate!
We are presently located at
34361 Old Sterling Hwy.,
next door to the Anchor River Inn Store.
Thanks to the Food Bank of Alaska and the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank we are able to begin construction. This will help us to better serve our neighbors by giving us a larger venue to work out of,
more storage and parking,
and assist us in sustainability.
Until we get there it's an adventure,
the Alaskan way.
