Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry Inc.
Lawrenceville, GA 30046
Details: The Lawrenceville Co-Op is sponsored and operated by an alliance of area churches, combining the resources of our members to meet the emergency needs of residents of Lawrenceville and Dacula in Gwinnett County, Georgia. We depend upon support from churches, individuals, civic groups and foundations. Food Bank - Clients may receive food from the Co-Op once every 30 days. The food provided is enough to feed a family for approximately one week. Available food includes canned goods, as well as bread and other bakery items donated by local grocery stores. Fresh vegetables are sometimes available during summer months, when some churches donate items grown in their own gardens. No frozen foods are provided. In addition to food, the Co-Op often can provide each client with a small amount of household supplies, such as toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, diapers, and laundry detergent. CLIENTS: Each time you come to the Co-Op for food, you must bring a current piece of mail to prove that you still live within our service area (Lawrenceville and Dacula). The postmark or date must be within the last 30 days. If you do not receive any mail, you may need to periodically mail something to yourself so that you will have this proof of address. You must arrive at the Co-Op at least 30 minutes prior to closing, to assure that you will be seen that day. Some clients may wish to apply for FOOD STAMPS to supplement the food available to their families. The amount of food stamps received by a family is considered in determining eligibility to receive additional food from the Co-Op.
The Quinn House - Food Bank
Lawrenceville, GA 30046
Details: The Quinn House is a State of Georgia licensed food bank. We operate our foodbox outreach from our location at 120 South Perry Street in Lawrenceville, GA. Our senior food box program has grown to almost 150 a month. These boxes contain groceries, toiletries, and other items that help get our seniors through that last week of the month. That is 150 individuals or families that are borderline starving each month. It’s incredible that many seniors must choose between medicine for their health, and basic grocery and hygiene items. This is an extremely worthwhile and fulfilling outreach here at Quinn House. As well as grocery items we can use items such as magnifiers, lotions, or anything you think a senior might be able to use and enjoy. This is just the beginning, With your help, and the assistance of corporate sponsors such as Sams Club, Kroger, Publix, Pepperidge Farm, and others, we are able to help stock 15 food pantries across North and East Central Georgia. Food has always been a central theme of our outreach and we prepare two meals daily for our residents, and anyone who happens in at the home on 120 Perry Street in Lawrenceville. We also hand out boxes daily to those in need.
