Get Food

Pastor’s Pantry provides groceries once per month at no cost to individuals (age 60+) who qualify.  It takes about an hour to go through the screening process, which includes a review of your income, in our office.  If after the screening process you qualify for monthly groceries, you will be able to receive groceries on that day and then return once per month.  We typically provide 7-10 plastic grocery bags of food per month, which we estimate should last around 16 days, to each client.

If someone has an immediate need, we give them emergency food regardless of their age.

We do not provide cooked meals, only groceries.

Our clients are generally 60 years of age or older and meet household income requirements.

Call us at 336-249-8824 to schedule an appointment.

    I really dont know where else to go. I have four children ages, 5, 4, 3, and 2, and I really need to get some food for them. My husband and myself are trying to do what we can and our foodstamps have not been distributed to us yet. We have been worried about how to feed the kids and I have tried to borrow money but no one seems to want to help. Or they do not have it. Is there any way that you all could help us, at all?

    I am inquiring about getting some help for my mother. She is 61, and she is on disability and unable to travel. Is there anyway that I can get some help for her?

    • Pastor's Pantry on said:

      If she lives in Davidson County, she may be eligible to become one of our senior clients. She would need to schedule an interview with our Pantry Coordinator where that determination would be made. If approved, she would begin receiving monthly groceries immediately. Hope that helps!

    Hi, I was wondering if theres any way I could get help with food for my family. I am taking care of my mother who is 57, my roommate’s father who is 58, my 13 year old daughter, my roommate herself who is having a hard time finding employment, her 14 year old daughter, plus our animals. I am the only person with an income and recently hurt my back and hip at work due to a big rack of heavy parts falling. We just moved over to Denton and it took all the money I had to get us all moved here. I am doing my best to take care of everyone and getting the parents on disability, my roommate on foodstamps but I dont qualify even though I am taking care of all 6 of us. Is there any way I could get with food this month? Every thing should work out for us eventually, but right now we are scraping up change and living on potatos and onions.

    • Pastor's Pantry on said:
