Due to the COVID-19 emergency, this program has been suspended indefinitely. However, weekly food distribution is available weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 P.M. until 5:00 P.M. at our Parking Lot Entrance.
The Food Pantry opened its doors in June 2009, after First Baptist Church conducted a strategic planning initiative that included missions. The Food Pantry is operated by church volunteers and gives non-perishable food, paper items, toiletries, etc. It is our mission to provide nourishment to those in need in the community. It is our intention to not only provide food but kindness and respect to those who come for assistance.
Our doors are open the first three Tuesdays of each month from 12:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. The Pantry is closed for Church funerals, holidays, and inclement weather.
Whom Do We Serve?
We assist anyone in need of food including those referred by community agencies and word of mouth. Families and individuals may receive help every six months. Please call 336-722-0595 at 10:00 A.M. on the Thursday before the Tuesday you wish to come in for assistance.
The first time a person receives help, please be prepared to share household information.
The Food Pantry receives resources from the following:
- First Baptist Church Budget
- Member Donations
- Auxiliary Contributions
