Food Assistance

Many residents of Forsyth County who are in a financial crisis do not have enough food in the home, particularly nutritious food that their family needs. When a family is in financial crisis, providing a substantial food order for them allows hunger to be relieved.

People requesting food through Crisis Control Ministry must be the Head of Household and are asked to provide their lease and income verification.  Families select items in our Client Choice Food Pantry based upon eating preferences and each  food order is designed to provide nutritious meals that will last for a two-week period. Specific foods provided are determined by inventory levels and donations. The average food order consists of at least 60 different food items including milk, eggs, meat, fresh produce, and toiletries,  all selected by the shopper.
