Crisis Control Ministry's Client Choice Food Pantries are an integral component of our organization. Our clients are able to select the foods that their family will eat.
Over recent years, this service has grown exponentially, and sadly, all indicators predict continued growth of demand. Many residents of Forsyth County face hunger, and we are working to help alleviate some of this local problem. Unfortunately, current economic times dictate higher levels of poverty and have increased the need for our services in the Forsyth community.
Information for Clients:
Clients requesting food through Crisis Control Ministry are required to provide income and expense verification. The food order is designed to provide each family with two nutritious meals a day for a minimum of seven days. Specific foods provided are determined by inventory levels and donations. The average food order consists of at least 50 different food items ranging from breakfast foods to meat to produce with each item being selected by the client.

Information for Community Supporters:
Without the widespread support that we receive from Forsyth County community organizations, we could not provide the quantity and quality of food assistance that we currently do. We are truly grateful to local businesses, churches, schools, individuals, and other organizations who consistently provide food that ultimately helps to eradicate hunger from Forsyth County.
Food Collection Programs:
- Gift of the Month: The Gift of the Month program is designed to provide information to supporters about food and hygiene items that CCM is in need of in order to maintain nutritional standards and variety.
- Partnership Program: When involved in the Partnership Program, organizations choose one item of food that they will continuously supply to the ministry's client choice food pantries. One church is our source for spaghetti sauce while another only collects jams and jellies for us.
- WEE Care!: Preschools, elementary schools, and church youth groups throughout the area collect cereal in April for our food pantry.
- Food Drives: The Food Drives that support our client choice food pantries are organized and run by the supporting organizations.
- Emergency Appeals: Sometimes we will run out of an important item and will launch an appeal and also list the items on our Gift of the Month page.
