About Us

About Us

The Pantry of Broward is a 501(c)3 organization registered with the State of Florida. The Pantry was founded in 2008 by Elizabeth “B.J. Buntrock,” a local philanthropist who saw the need for a charitable organization that could address the unique needs of seniors and grandparents raising their grandchildren on fixed incomes. In addition to providing its 425 clients with a 55-pound box of nutritional foods each month, The Pantry’s clinical director meets with each client to determine their additional needs (and those of the children they are raising) and assist them with applying for and obtaining food stamps (The Pantry is a community access partner for SNAP), government assistance, affordable housing, discounted utilities, transportation assistance and low-cost healthcare services, as needed.
