The Pantry on Church

The Pantry on Church packs and distributes food in our community every Tuesday. Our partner is Sweetwater Mission in Austell. We serve 315 families each week. Adult volunteers pack at Sweetwater between 9-11:30 AM. Volunteers of high school age and older distribute food in our parking lot on Tuesday evenings between 5-7 PM. For needs and opportunities to serve, see below.

Do you need food? Necesitas comida?

You are welcome to come through our drive through pick-up line on Tuesdays between 5-7pm.

Opportunities to Serve

The need is not going away! If your work organization would like to organize a donation drive or would like a one-time volunteer experience, we would love to work with you.

If you would like to volunteer to pack (mornings) and distribute (late afternoons) food on Tuesdays, we welcome individuals, civic and private business groups, as well as high school students who need service hours.

If you would like to volunteer but are not available on Tuesdays, we can accommodate you. Currently, our volunteer needs include occasional item pick up that would require a pickup truck or a large SUV. Trips to Helping Mamas in Norcross happen once a month. Trips to Atlanta GLOW in Marietta are up to twice a month. We also have a time we call First Thursdays, when on the first Thursday of the month volunteers meet in the Pantry to take care of current needs, such as sorting food and packing family pantry boxes.

Our Prayer Card Ministry needs volunteers who can translate written Spanish into English. This ministry also needs a volunteer manager who can oversee the distribution of the prayer cards to various groups in the church. This manager should be an FPC member; the process is already established, but could possibly use a little tweaking.

For program questions or inquiries about these opportunities, email Martie Moore here.
