Details: The mission of the Agape Ministry is to be a community outreach for our church, which is how it started. However, since our beginning, we have served clients as far south as Hephzibah, as far north as North Augusta, South Carolina and as far west as Columbia County. From our church members and friends of Belle-Terrace Church and a few of the local stores in our community and surrounding communities, we have received donations of food, store gift certificates, clothing, appliances, toys, school supplies and furniture. We are very grateful to you for helping us to keep this project going and we pray that you will continue with your donations of clothing, food, etc. We do appreciate you and offer a very hearty thank you for your support. On a regular basis, we send clothes to Haiti, we take clothes and bread to Freeman Personal Care Home, Daisy Vincent Personal Care Home and clothes and blankets to the homeless. We have also participated in the preparation of hot meals and delivered food to the homeless. However, our primary concern is to ensure that our local clients are properly supported from our pantry with food, clothing, toys, school supplies and furniture. One of our pet projects is the giving of Thanksgiving Baskets. We have given from 30 to 52 Thanksgiving baskets every year in addition to the number of clients we serve monthly. These baskets contain enough food for a family of four or more. The baskets are stuffed with a 10+ pound turkey, several cans of vegetables and fruit, dry beans, two starches (i.e. macaroni & Cheese, instant mashed potatoes, etc.), a desert, dressing mix, gravy mix and when it is available we also give fresh produce (vegetables and fruits).

Christ Episcopal Church Outreach Ministries
Augusta, GA 30914
706.736.5165
Details: Outreach ministries have been the central focus of Christ Church’s ministry since it was established in 1882. With its location in the Harrisburg neighborhood of Augusta, Christ Church is able to provide direct, on site outreach services to the poor and hungry of Augusta. The signature ministry of Christ Church is the Soup Kitchen, which operates every Saturday. This is an important day to hold the Soup Kitchen as many other social service agencies do not offer assistance on the weekend. Volunteers from around Augusta come to Christ Church every weekend to help feed the hungry. The Soup Kitchen is one of Augusta’s busiest, and served over 10,800 meals in 2011. Many of these meals are served to children and families. The Food Pantry is operated by Christ Church on a monthly basis. We offer food to families and individuals with a valid ID on the third Thursday of every month beginning at 11:00 a.m. A similar ministry is the Clothing Ministry which provides clothing to those unable to purchase it. Clothing and other donated items are distributed at the weekly Soup Kitchen and monthly Food Pantry. Christ Church has also entered into a partnership with physician assistant students at the Georgia Health Sciences University who run a medical screening clinic one Saturday per month at the Soup Kitchen. The students gain important skills in physical examination and interviewing techniques under the supervision of a faculty member while offering screenings for high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases.
DCCM Food Pantry
Augusta, GA 30901
706.722.3530
Details: DCCM Food Pantry is a coalition of 15 multi-denominational area churches and private donors that have combined resources to run a centrally located food pantry. We are located on 430 8th St., in the heart of Augusta, and conveniently located near several housing complexes and on Route 3 of the Augusta Public Transit system. Since 1978, DCCM has established itself as a consistent, reliable source of food for those in need. DCCM distributes bags of nutritious food to individuals that meet income guidelines. We strive to supply a diverse array of items that our clients would be proud to feed their family. It is our hope that everyone has access to nutritious food regardless of their ability to pay. DCCM also offers “Snack Packs” to our homeless clients. Snack packs are ready-to-eat, prepackaged foods that do not require cooking equipment. These Snack packs enable our homeless clients to eat when the soup kitchens and shelters are not open. DCCM is categorized as a “super pantry,” distributing nearly 100 tons of food to clients every year. Because of our convenient location, regular hours, and consistency, DCCM has become a pillar in the community for those needing food. Over 1200 families each month rely on DCCM for sustenance. Most area pantries operate as an “Emergency Pantry,” limiting the amount of times an individual may receive food to a few times per year. Because the majority of our clients are on a fixed income and face chronic food insecurity, we allow individuals to receive food several times each month if needed. As a result, DCCM volunteers build a genuine rapport with our clients. We pride ourselves on developing relationships with the people we serve. DCCM works in partnership with Golden Harvest Food Bank to provide food for those in need. A bag of food contains an assortment of canned goods and frozen meat or vegetables. We also provide bread, milk, fresh produce, juice, and cereal when available. We are proud that our organization is operated nearly entirely by volunteers. We have over 30 volunteers that dedicate their time to load groceries, interview clients and pack bags. Without their hard work and generosity, DCCM would not be able to feed the hungry in our community.
GAP Ministries
Augusta, GA 30901

Details: GAP Ministries was founded in 1979 as a mission outreach of local Presbyterian and Disciples of Christ churches. Over the years the ministries provided by GAP have evolved as the needs of the community have changed, and we have continued to find ways to "fill the gap" between needs and services. Our base of support has also broadened, so that now we have thirteen churches and organizations from several denominations providing funding and/or volunteers. Food Pantry: GAP serves an average of 90 clients each week who are provided with canned goods, fresh breads and produce, frozen meat, and hygiene products each Thursday from 10:30AM-1PM. The stock comes from Golden Harvest Food Bank (link) and from donations from churches, individuals, Atlanta Bread Company and Fresh Market. As an act of hospitality clients may shop from the shelves for foods they enjoy.
