Food Pantry

Improving Access to Food

The Bernard & Millie Duker Children's Hospital Food Pantry is available to help our pediatric patients and families. The pantry is stocked with non-perishable food items to supplement breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

To receive a bag of food, families can ask a member of the medical team during their appointment. Bags are currently available at the pediatric subspecialty offices and in the Melodies Center.
