What We Do

Established in 2004, the Clemmons Food Pantry is a non-profit organization providing supplemental groceries to residents of Forsyth County. Started as a Sunday school project by a small group at Clemmons United Methodist Church, the Pantry has since grown to an award-winning community organization that has extended its services to more than 175,000 people.
 
We hold strong to our roots as an organization with a mission to help those in need by filling the most basic of needs – nourishing the body.  From the start, it was determined that the Pantry would not turn away anyone in need, regardless of circumstance. This still holds true today and clients may receive groceries every 30 days no matter their income or situation.
 
In 2015, we began our “Client Choice” program, which allows our clients to select their own groceries. Our client facility resembles a small grocery store, and clients use shopping carts to choose for themselves what products they receive. Giving our clients the opportunity to choose their own food lets them have a sense of dignity and control, limits waste (since they tend not to take food they won’t use) and allows them to tailor the help they receive to be the best possible fit for their own unique situation.
 
Our food comes from many sources:
  • Community donations of non-perishable food and fresh produce
  • Government programs
  • Purchases of low-cost food from the Second Harvest Food Bank
  • Supplemental purchases of fresh meat and produce
The Pantry is fortunate to be supported entirely by a network of more than 350 generous volunteers who give their time and energy to serve others. With no paid employees, we are able to use the  majority of our donations to purchase food from Second Harvest as well as meat and produce from retailers and distributors.
