The VFC Food Pantry distributed 4,470 bags of food resulting in over 11,000 meals in 2016.
We are open on Thursday mornings from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. You must bring a government issued ID with you to register. We have a pastor on site to minister to those who request prayer or counseling.
We started with only two shelves in our kitchen stocked by the contributions from church members. We now have expanded the Food Pantry into its own building, have obtained a freezer for meats and frozen food, and fill large shelves from top to bottom every week. We partner with Second Harvest of Thomasville (www.feedingsga.org) in order to purchase food at a greatly reduced rate. Books and teaching CD’s are also given out on a regular basis to those visiting the Food Pantry.
In addition to the weekly food pantry, we also have the capability of hosting a Manna Drop. A Manna Drop is when a large truck from Second Harvest comes and drops off enough food to feed approximately 600 people (200 families) at one time. Recipients drive through our line and are hand-delivered large bags of food. Manna Drops are done as donations permit.
We Need Your Help
Contributions from the community are greatly appreciated! Each Manna Drop costs $500 and regular stocking of our pantry requires consistent giving to sustain.
