Douglas County emergency food pantries.

Anyone that is struggling to feed their family and that resides in Douglas County can turn to a food pantry for help. Several centers distribute groceries, clothing, and even holiday meals to struggling individuals. The goal is to never turn anyone away, but if a pantry doesn't have enough items in stock then the staff may refer the client to other programs.

The non-profit food banks help children, the elderly, and others in the community. In some cases they will even deliver a meal to a disabled or home bound resident of the Douglasville Georgia area. So numerous services are run year round.

It is always recommended to call a center in advance to determine what they can do to assist, if anything. Many of the pantries also operate limited hours and may require supporting proof of the hardship, such as income or lack of employment.
