Forsyth County food banks and pantries

Food banks in Forsyth County can support low income families and people who are struggling. There are a number of non-profit agencies that provide everything from a free bag of groceries to personal hygiene items and free, emergency boxes of food. The organizations are open limited hours and rely heavily on donations as well as volunteers.

Many of the food pantries also offer other support to the needy. This can include things such as applications to USDA food stamps or maybe senior citizens can enroll into a Meals on Wheels service. Another focus is on referring families to meal sites in Forsyth County that can offer Christmas or Thanksgiving meals, or snacks for children that are on summer break.
