Feeding Families in Gilmer County Since 2001. Your donations make it possible!
Your generosity will help us continue to feed the hungry in our county. We rely completely on donations and receive no government support.
If you would like to donate food, you can do so at the Pantry on Tuesdays from 8:30–11:30 a.m., or during the rest of the week by placing items in the black boxes at the front door.
We need any type of canned vegetables and fruit, spaghetti sauce, noodles, boxes of mac and cheese, saltine crackers and any type of soups.
Please help by making a tax free donation.
We are a 501-C3, nonprofit organization.
If you want your monetary gift to be used for the SACK PACK Program, please end your donation in .66 cents.
If you want your donation to be used for the Pet Food Outreach Program, have your donation end in .33 cents.
A group of our dedicated volunteers pack food for 384 children each week, and it is delivered to the schools to be distributed to them on Fridays, so the kids won’t go hungry over the weekend.
You see, we need the continued generosity, help and support of all individuals, businesses and churches who can donate food or money to our cause.
The need for the Pantry to continue to feed the hungry in our county is going to continue. If you would like your monetary gift to be used for the SACK PACK Program, please end your donation in .66 cents.
Gilmer County: Your Pantry’s Pet Food Outreach has provided dog and cat food for hundreds of families who are “food at risk” themselves. Since the Outreach’s establishment, tons of pet food have been distributed. 🐾🐶🐈⬛
In order to have sufficient quantities of pet food, we have started a relationship with chewy.com. Below is the link:
If you would like to purchase pet food for our clients you can do so directly through Chewy or you can drop pet food off at the Pantry on Tuesdays 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.-ish or Wednesdays 9:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Pet food can be donated at the large, gray pet food donation box by the front door. It is checked frequently and unloaded regularly.
If you want your monetary donation to be used for the Pet Food Outreach Program, have your donation end in .33 cents.
If you are homeless and need food, the “Little Free Pantry” is always available 24 X 7. Located at the Gilmer Health Department (28 Southside Church St, Ellijay, GA 30540).
The Little Free Pantry is also where you can drop off shelf stable food for others, similar to the Little Free Library “leave a book, take a book” concept.
The first Tuesday of each month, 750–1,000 lbs. of shelf-stable food is delivered to the Gilmer County Senior Center.
Adopt-a-Family is a program that seeks to find food-at-risk families who can’t get to us for a number of select, justified reasons. It endeavors to match needy families with people in the community who can deliver food to them.
We see this program as one perfectly suited for individuals, church groups and club members who don’t have the time to be regular, weekly volunteers.
If you would like to make a significant impact on the life of a shut-in, a poor working family, the sick, the elderly or a single mother, call 706.273.3663.
Leave your name and phone number, and we will have someone contact you about giving 2 hours a month of your time to deliver food and ❤️.
