Through our volunteers, we provide free food to the poor and hungry in High Point. Each month we distribute hundreds of pounds of groceries to disadvantaged residents in southeast High Point.
The Food Pantry receives food from the following places:
Private donation of food
The Federal Government through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)
Food purchased from Second Harvest with donated funds.
The food is sorted, shelved, and refrigerated. It is then bagged for various sized families. Each bag includes a balance of starches, vegetables, proteins, meat, and fresh produce.
Personal hygiene, diapers, and pet food are frequently available.
All items are provided free of charge.
(closed Temporarily due to Covid-19)
Through our volunteers and generous donors, we provide lightly-worn clothing at greatly reduced prices. We stock clothing for all seasons, sizes, ages, and genders as well as limited household items.
The Clothing Closet is open during the same hours as the Food Pantry. Proceeds from sales are used to purchase food and personal hygiene for distribution.
Emergency financial assistance
We provide very limited, emergency financial assistance to qualifying residents to assist with rent and utilities. Contact us for additional information.
