Greensboro Urban Ministry’s food pantry helps many men, women and families with children who struggle with food insecurity. The pantry’s shelves remain stocked thanks primarily to your generous donations!
Twice a year, GUM works with congregations and grocery stores for the weekend #FeedGSO food drives.
The fall #FeedGSO food drive will be Oct. 20 and 21. Volunteers will be outside participating stores on Friday and Saturday to collect your donations. They also can provide a shopping list of items to you as you go into the store so you can see which items the pantry needs most.
Here is a list of participating grocery chains:
Food Lion Stores- Saturday Only
Harris Teeter Stores – Friday & Saturday
Lowes Food Stores – Friday & Saturday
Walmart Neighborhood Market Store (W. Friendly Ave. W. Gate City Blvd. and Alamance Church Rd.) Friday & Saturday
Whole Foods – Friday & Saturday
Last year, the community shared 1.3 million pounds of nonperishable food by donating to the pantry. Volunteers packed this food into emergency grocery bags. GUM distributed 1.1 million pounds of food in these bags and assisted 20,947 households.
Please shop and share on Oct. 20-21. Help people in our community who lack access to food because they must stretch scarce budgets on things like rent, medicine, childcare and transportation.
Post on social media to remind your friends to shop and share, too! Use the #FeedGSO hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
