Free groceries are available to anyone who has a need. Clients do not have to be a resident of Burke County to be eligable for assistance. The only requirement is that the family has a need. Food Distribution is each Tuesday afternoon from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m., with registration for new clients beginning at 1:00 p.m. For a family to register, they must present a valid picture ID along with something that will enable us to verify the address. Families may come each week as long as there is a need.
Please Consider Volunteering!
The Outreach Center's Food Distribution is an ongoing process and volunteers are needed every day, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed to fill grocery bags and to assist in receiving and preparing food for distribution to other organizations.
Around 130 volunteers are needed every Tuesday night for the main food distribution. Youth groups are welcome! From 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., around 1,000 families receive food. Volunteers are needed to fill grocery bags and grocery carts, to push groceries out to the client's vehicle, to pray with each client or family, crowd control, security, client registration, volunteer registration and other areas.
