Food Pantry

Our client-choice Food Pantry is open to anyone who is experiencing food insecurity.  We do not discriminate based on age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, housing status, or religion.  We do not require any documentation.

We serve our guests on a first come first served basis.  Guests begin gathering outside the pantry at 9:30 a.m..  Guests will sign up on a list and then be called into the building in groups. Guests are welcome to have a serving of any refreshment we have available. Guests then will check in at a computer station staffed by a volunteer.

10:30 - 11:00: Express Bags (roughly 9 lbs of basics to last 2 - 3 days) only

11:00 - 12:30: Shopping (A shopping assistant is available if a guests needs help going through the line)

12:30 - 1:00 Express Bags only

As long as a guest checks in before 12:30, s/he is welcomed to shop from the products available, following the portion rules per person in the family.

We do not require ID, but if there are a number of people in the family, some documentation (such as a lease agreement) is appreciated. Non-related and non-partnered adults living in the same household must each register as individuals and pick up their own food.

Homeless Outreach

If you or your neighbor is experiencing homelessness in the City of Atlanta, the first step to getting assistance is to complete a Coordinated Entry Assessment.  Our Homeless Outreach Case Managers will complete these assessments as they meet people where they are: under a bridge, in a park, behind a dumpster, in the woods. 

The fastest way to get a Coordinated Entry Assessment completed is to go to a Coordinated Entry Site:
