Our food pantry is open to share groceries with up to 80 families every Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm.
We are an emergency food assistance ministry (clients are allowed a maximum of seven visits per year). Volunteer interviewers minister on an individual basis to every person that receives assistance.
Volunteer opportunities include interviewing clients and evangelism, sorting food items, packing food boxes, picking up food from Golden Harvest (requires a pickup truck), or donating needed items.
If you're interested in volunteering please fill out our online form
or contact the office at (706) 722-5999.
Aside from volunteering to work during food pantry hours, we also need assistance in stocking the food pantry. Below is a list of some of the items needed for Abraham's Place:
