Jubilee Food Pantry
Decatur, AL 35603
Details: Jubilee Family Worship Center operates a food pantry as an outreach to our community. Jubilee Food Pantry serves all of Morgan County. Jubilee Food Pantry is supported by the congregation of the church and other private donors and sponsors. The bulk of the food is purchased through the North Alabama Food Bank in Huntsville. Other food products are donated throughout the year from drives sponsored locally such as Can-A-Thon (WAFF 48) or the Postal Letter Carriers. People who come to the food pantry are required to provide "proof" of their need through an Eligibility Criteria Form provided by the USDA. We strive to make the approval process as easy as possible. Once approved, the patrons may pick up an allotment once per month. Each allotment is based on what is available to us and food we "glean" from donors like Wal-Mart and Publix. Everyone will receive a packaged bag of canned goods and other non-perishable food. They also are given bread, cakes, fruit and other items available from time to time like toothpaste or shampoo. Each allotment is usually over 30 lbs. of FREE help. The pantry is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am until 2pm.
