Do you need emergency food assistance?
Please link to our Emergency Assistance Program page.
The Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank collects and redistributes good, edible food to 100 households or more a day. This food, which would otherwise be discarded, comes from these sources:
Greensboro Urban Ministry strives to fill the gap between individual income and government benefits by providing emergency food assistance through our Emergency Assistance Program.
These food assistance bags include fruits and vegetables, grains, and protein, to help ensure that those receiving assistance are eating balanced nutritious meals. By helping to ebb the pains of hunger, recipients are provided with some peace of mind and the fortitude necessary to focus on other areas of crisis in their lives.
While roughly 80% of the families and individuals receiving food assistance are financially stable outside of their food needs, nearly 20% of recipients are in need of additional assistance. For these people, their additional needs are identified and the Emergency Assistance Program assists them financially to help ensure that stability can be regained.
