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 spring #FeedGSO food drive will be Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6. 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
Last year, GUM distributed 1.4 million pounds of food in emergency grocery bags and assisted 22,900 households.
When you are buying groceries you can do a lot of good by bringing home something to donate. Please select one or more canned or non-perishable food items such as:
• Tuna, Salmon, etc.
• Beef Stew, Spam, Corned Beef
• Peanut Butter, 18 oz.
• Greens, e.g. Turnip, Mixed Vegetables
• Peas (green)
• Tomatoes, Corn, Green Beans
• Peaches, Pears, Fruit Cocktail, Applesauce
• Sugar, 2 lbs.
• Dry milk
• Oatmeal, 18 oz.
• Macaroni & cheese
• Bags of dry beans
• Rice, 1 lb. or larger bags
No glass containers or open packages
Please shop and share on April 5 & 6. 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.
