Crossroads Food Pantry a 'full service' partner agency of MFB Georgia
The best way to describe Crossroads Food Pantry is "full service." Located on the Thomas Crossroad Church campus, the pantry has grown in the last three years from a small cabinet of food to giving 2,000 pounds of food away every Monday. Crossroads is a nonprofit partner of Midwest Food Bank Georgia."Our model is a grocery store environment where our clients shop for what they need," says Tommy Inman, pastor of Community Impact. "We have shopping assistants who help our clients shop, and we bag all their groceries and then carry it to their car."
Another client shared that the food she receives from the pantry allows her to buy the oxygen her husband needs to live.
Crossroads Food Pantry receives 34 percent of the food they distribute from Midwest Food Bank Georgia, all free of charge.
About 67 volunteers work in various roles in the pantry to serve over 200 families representing more than 800 individuals. About a third of the clients are senior citizens on fixed incomes. Others are going through job loss or medical issues.
