Food Pantry

 
 
Since the early 1990’s, the Food Pantry has been a mission activity dedicated to providing food stuffs to needy individuals and their families. In 2008, the Pantry distributed canned and packaged goods to 8,855 individuals and 3,016 families right here in the northern part of Houston County. Since 1996, the Food Pantry has provided a week’s worth of groceries to 86,051 people from 29,930 families.
 
The Warner Robins Methodist Food Pantry is a mission activity supported by both local church and non-church organizations.  Financial support for the Food Pantry is through second-level giving from individuals, Sunday School Classes, and supporting churches. 
 
Food to support the Pantry is donated by each supporting church, area public schools, a local college, public libraries, and support groups on Robins Air Force Bace.  The Middle Georgia Community Food Bank in Macon is the main supplier of foods.  Each month over 50 volunteers join in to make this mission a reality.
 
If you have a caring and sharing heart, discerning powers of observation, attention to detail and good records keeping skills, any and all of these skills can be put to work in the Pantry.
 
Operating hours for the Food Pantry are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.
 
 
To receive assistance from the Food Pantry you will need to bring the following:
 
  • Valid  photo ID
  • SS numbers/cards for members of household
  • Proof of residence within Warner Robins city limits (north of Hwy. 96)
