Fairgrove Family Resource Center Food Pantry
Thomasville, NC 27360
Details: One in every three children and one in every seven adults suffer from hunger every day in Davidson County. In our modernized society, we are of the belief no one should go to bed hungry because they do not have enough food. This is particularly true with respect to children and our elders. In fact, nearly 61% of the people receiving food assistance at FGFRC are under the age of 18 or are seniors. They depend on the nutrition provided by our food packages each month. FGFRC works in conjunction with Second Harvest Food Bank of NW North Carolina. In addition to getting TEFAP (government provided free food in the form of USDA commodities), we can purchase food at greatly reduced prices. Through our partnership with Second Harvest, we also receive food from Food Lion and Just Save (formerly Lowes Foods) every week. We are fortunate to have generous support from local grocery stores, community groups and individuals, schools and churches in food and monetary donations. Our food pantry has developed into a "safety net" that helps thousands of low-income families avoid risk of hunger. Eligible families need to complete an application and come to our office. Clients may come every 30 days for a food box. We can always use food donations. The need in our community is so great. Our wish list would be meats, breakfast foods and soups, but we welcome all donations, large or small.
